Featured Author: David Sedaris
If you can't see David Sedaris in person (he tours often, and Madison is a regular stop), his books are the next best thing. His clever humor will have you laughing out loud, so if you're reading in public, don't say we didn't warn you! We've got his complete collection at College Library and other campus libraries.
