David Sedaris presents and signs Squirrel Seeks Chipmunk

Vroman's Bookstore

695 E. Colorado Blvd, Pasadena, CA 91101


Featuring David Sedaris's unique blend of hilarity and heart, this new collection of keen-eyed animal-themed tales is an utter delight. Though the characters may not be human, the situations in these stories bear an uncanny resemblance to the insanity of everyday life. In "The Toad, the Turtle, and the Duck," three strangers commiserate about animal bureaucracy while waiting in a complaint line. In "Hello Kitty," a cynical feline struggles to sit through his prison-mandated AA meetings. In "The Squirrel and the Chipmunk," a pair of star-crossed lovers is separated by prejudiced family members. With original illustrations by Ian Falconer, author of the bestselling Olivia series of children's books, these stories are David Sedaris at his most observant, poignant, and surprising.

- This is a ticketed event. Customers can obtain a ticket by purchasing a copy of David Sedaris' new book, Squirrel Seeks Chipmunk, from Vroman's main store or Hastings Ranch

Huntington Library

1151 Oxford Road, San Marino, 91108


One of the most beautiful spots in the State is right in our backyard, at the Huntington Gardens & Library.  It’s got a fabulous (and wet!) kids area, beautiful gardens for strolling through, a tasty tea house, an world class art collection – in short, it’s a perfect place to spend the day  exploring with kids.  It’s also not cheap, something parents (with little ones who may tantrum and have to leave at any second) often steer clear of.  However, every first Thursday, the Garden is free – you just have to request a ticket in advance.  And today’s the day (the first of the month) that you can reserve your tickets for next month’s free day
