David Sedaris To Read From Squirrel Seeks Chipmunk at Changing Hands Bookstore

Changing Hands Bookstore announced last week that David Sedaris -- National Public Radio contributor and author of Me Talk Pretty One Day and When You Are Engulfed in Flames -- will read from his latest collection Squirrel Seeks Chipmunk: A Modest Bestiary , at the Tempe bookstore at 6 p.m. Wednesday, December 1.

The short story collection was released on September 28 and was illustrated by Ian Falconer. Through the stories, Sedaris anthropomorphizes squirrels, cats, turtles, and ducks as they encounter absurd and cautionary situations.

Those who purchase the book at Changing Hands for $21.99 will have the chance to meet the New York Times bestselling scribe and get their book(s) signed.

Changing Hands says that there will be limited seating for the event. Once that fills up, attendees can listen to Sedaris' reading, broadcast through speakers, on a standing-room-only basis.

AS OF MONDAY AFTERNOON: Changing Hands has notified us that seats are sold out, but that standing room and tickets to the meet-and-greet are available.
