Peter Sagal attended Noreascon 3 (the 1989 Worldcon), where he got to meet some of his literary heroes, including Isaac Asimov and Frederik Pohl. In January 1998, he made his debut on "Wait, Wait ... Don't Tell Me" as a panelist before becoming host of the show in May of that year. Sagal published his first book, "The Book of Vice: Naughty Things and How to Do Them" in 2007. He also recorded the narration for a self-guided walking tour of Chicago's Field Museum of Natural History.
On Saturday, March 17, Peter Sagal will be Toastmaster at “An Evening to Honor Gene Wolfe,” where supporters of the Chicago Literary Hall of Fame and members of Chicago's literary and arts communities will gather to present leading science fiction and fantasy writer Gene Wolfe with the first Fuller Award, acknowledging an outstanding lifetime contribution to literature.
