“I'm the most important person in the lives of almost everyone I know and a good number of the people I've never even met.” So claims David Sedaris, who can get away with being too big for his britches as long as he keeps churning out hilarious, heartfelt essays on a seemingly endless variety of topics. His most recent book is Squirrel Seeks Chipmunk, a collection of animal-themed fables starring cats, dogs, mice, cows and crows. Though he regularly sells out such venues as Royce Hall, for this visit he'll be perched in cozy Vroman's reading and signing for his adoring fans.
