4. Let's Explore Diabetes with Owls by David Sedaris Why it's on our reading list:
First off, it's David Sedaris. That guy could put his name on anything at this point and we'd probably buy it. But whether you Sedaris savant or a newbie to the humorist's work, Let's Explore Diabetes with Owls promises to be a winning book for both. In his new book of globetrotting essays Sedaris covers everything "from the perils of French dentistry to the eating habits of the Australian kookaburra, from the squat-style toilets of Beijing to the particular wilderness of a North Carolina Costco."
Incidentally, David Sedaris will be bringing his book tour to Gammage Auditorium this Thursday. More info here.
