David Sedaris Gets Squirrelly

I love David Sedaris. I first heard of him on NPR. I love NPR, too. Here's when I went to see/hear Ira Glass . . .


The rumors are true. David Sedaris and I are BFF.


David doesn't know this, but I think it could be true. Someday. Sometime. Somewhere.

After all, we've met before . . .

So when I heard he had a new book out, I had to get it. 


It's David's first illustrated book for adults. And get this, the illustrator is Ian Falconer!


I love Ian Falconer, and even have his OLIVIA postage stamps . . .


So get this, if you bought the book at Vroman's in Pasadena, you could see/hear David for ZERO DOLLARS!

Vroman's is so cool. It's where I've had my book launch parties . . .

(That's Dan Santat signing with Moi. He illustrated my Bobby Ellis-Chan books, and he saw David Sedaris, too.)

The first people to buy SQUIRREL SEEKS CHIPMUNK were the first to get tickets. Still, you had to arrive early to get a good seat . . .


No photos were allowed . . . 


So here's an oil painting of not David prior to his appearance . . .


David spoke for an hour. He was delightful and funny and clever and witty and wise, and had me laughing so hard that I snorted. Snort. See, I'm doing it again.
