In his new essay collection, "Calypso," humorist David Sedaris brings his trademark wry wit to stories about Fitbit trackers, gastrointestinal issues, fad diets and wild animals. He also tackles some more difficult issues head-on, including aging, mortality and his sister's suicide. Sedaris joins Forum to discuss his latest essays, his interactions with audiences and what it's been like to be the literary world's dark humor darling for more than 25 years.
