Bud Y? Because Trillin's Speaking at the 92nd St. Y This Weekend

Filed under: On the Spot   Tagged: , , , , , , , ,

And even sooner at 192 Books, namely, tomorrow at 7 p.m. You may need to reserve your seat; give them a call just in case.
Meanwhile, here’s where to buy tickets for the Y event, which I’m really excited about:
Mark Singer, interviewer
Calvin Trillin became the “deadline poet” at The Nation in 1990. He has written verses on current events for The New Yorker, The New York Times and National Public Radio. His books on eating—American Fried; Alice, Let’s Eat; and Third Helpings—are considered classics. He is also known for his nonfiction books, such as Remembering Denny, Killings and, most recently, About Alice. His comic novels and commentary works include Tepper Isn’t Going Out, Obliviously on He Sails and A Heckuva Job.
Mark Singer is a staff writer at The New Yorker.
Date & Time: Sun, Jan 14, 2007, 7:30 pm
Location: Lexington Avenue at 92nd Street Directions
Venue: Kaufmann Concert Hall Seating Chart
Code: T-LC5CA05-01
Price: $25.00 All Sections
Meanwhile, unrelated to events, I agree, come back, Drunken Volcano New Yorker haiku! The precocious, engaging Jacob Thomas talks about art and covers. Blogger, football follower, and fact-checker Paul Smalera thinks there are factual errors (unnecessary roughness?) in Adam Gopnik’s football story, “The Unbeautiful Game,” from last week (not online). Finally, the unassailable Nancy Franklin talks to the cheeky Patricia Marx in a web-only Q. & A.


Trillin is also speaking Wednesday at Strand Books, and was on NPR’s “Morning Edition” recently. Here’s a link for the latter.
