Which is the title of the upcoming short story collection by David Sedaris. Noticed a big banner at Unabridged Books week before last announcing his appearance/signing there. A brief list of that and others, from Steven Barclay Agency:

And then some appearances in November in Hawai'i. Insert snarky comment here.
Related, in that they're both with Steven Barclay (and are doing some appearanes together in 2005), Sarah Vowell appears today/tonight at 8 at the Herbst Theatre, courtesy of City Arts & Lectures in San Francisco. And I'm confident I'll forget by then, but she'll also be at Butler University in Indianapolis on Thursday, October 7th.
Why yes, I am a This American Life fanboy, why do you ask?
