Sorry for the late notice on this, Sedaris fans.  Tomorrow, Nov. 5, humorist David Sedaris will be appearing at The Centre in Vancouver for the Performing Arts at 8 p.m.  And tickets are still available.

The quirky, unmistakable voice behind National Public Radio’s This American Life series, Sedaris has been described as the “rock star of writers.”  Since first being discovered reading his diary in a Chicago club more than 20 years ago, Sedaris has gone on to sell more than nine million books.

Covering themes as diverse as playing an elf in a Macy’s Christmas display to drug use and homosexuality, Sedaris’ books are known for his trademark self-deprecating humor and quasi-autobiographical voice.

Sedaris will be in Vancouver on Nov. 5 to read from his new best-seller, the characteristically off-beat Squirrel Seeks Chipmunk: A modest bestiary.  This darkly comic collection, much in the vein of Aesop’s fables, uses animal characters to explore human quirks and societal ills.

Hosted by the Vancouver International Writers Festival, the reading and book signing will be at The Centre in Vancouver for Performing Arts at 8 p.m.  Tickets start at $45.
