David Sedaris returns to the Vancouver Writers Fest this spring! 

With sardonic wit and incisive social critiques, David Sedaris has become one of America’s pre-eminent humour writers. The New York Times bestselling author joins us on May 14, 2024 at the Queen Elizabeth Theatre for an evening of unexpected, hilarious, and poignant storytelling.

His latest collection Happy-Go-Lucky captures recent upheavals both public (our global pandemic) and personal (the passing of his father). Time called it “some of his darkest—and most astute—writing yet… No topic is out of bounds for Sedaris’ acerbic humor and sharp observations.”

The event will be followed by an audience Q+A and book signing.
