I love David Sedaris. "Essayist and satirist" might not sound like the most lovable thing on Earth, but Sedaris is so hilarious, so accessible, so real, that his essays read like eating popcorn. You reach the bottom of the bowl, or the end of the book, before you can even notice how much you've taken in.

I'm most of the way through his latest offering, Calypso, a collection of essays that are highly personal, very funny and heartwarming. Sedaris deals with family, death, getting older and so much more with finesse and grace. It's a beautiful book.

Here are the details on how you can attend this event on the Texas Tech University campus:

In this [Wednesday] evening's presentation, Mr. Sedaris will read from new and unpublished work. Please note that some material will include adult themes and language.

“Sedaris ain't the preeminent humorist of his generation by accident.” -Whitney Pastorek, Entertainment Weekly
