Dunham, seven-time EMMY® nominee and two-time Golden Globe® Award winner will read stories of unrequited lust, dangerous dangling on the career ladder and tiny triumphs of the heart. Dunham serves as executive producer, writer and director for GIRLS, the highly popular series on HBO now in its third season. Dunham has quickly established herself as one of the top young voices in TV and film making today and recently signed a deal with Random House Publishing for a collection of essays to be titled Not That Kind of Girl: A Young Woman Tells You What She’s Learned, slated to be released in 2014.

“I have long been obsessed with David Sedaris’ work, speaking voice and personal life. I feel like this is my big chance to really get everything I need from him. This is an honor, a dream come true, and every other cliché used to describe incredible and unexpected things. I look forward to learning, and laughing, a lot.”- Lena Dunham

Internationally known for his sardonic wit, and one of the world’s most pre-eminent humorists, David Sedaris’ readings never fail to entertain and enlighten. Sedaris, author of multiple New York Times number one best sellers and three-time GRAMMY® nominee, has sold over 7 million copies of his books and has won countless literary awards. His latest book release, Let’s Explore Diabetes with Owls, debuted number one on the New York Times bestseller list and has remained on the list for the last 17 weeks.

“I’ve loved Lena’s writing on Girls and in The New Yorker. Then we met and I was struck, not just by her enthusiasm, but by her excellent manners. She’s young and talented and writes e-mails that begin with “Dear” rather than, “Hi.”- David Sedaris
