Meet food funny man Calvin Trillin

August 29th 10:08am, 2011

082911_calvinCalvin Trillin, author of several novels and well known writer and columnist for The New Yorker, Time and The Nation (not all at once, of course), is coming home … or at least close to it. Born and raised in Kansas City, Mo., Trillin is perhaps best known for his weekly column, Deadline Poet, where he writes humorous rhymes about U.S. current events. But his wit and wisdom extend beyond playful prose, especially when eating is involved.

Trillin’s time as the American Journal writer for The New Yorker brought him all over the country, which meant eating all kinds of food. This “gastronomic journey” eventually led to three books: American Fried, Third Helpings and Alice, Let’s Eat (all of which were printed into The Tummy Trilogy in 1994).

On September 29, Trillin’s journey takes him back to his roots – and more precisely to the Central West End – to talk about his newest book, Quite Enough of Calvin Trillin: Forty Years of Funny Stuff. Sauce Magazine, Left Bank Books and the St. Louis Public Library are all teaming up to give you a chance to stop by and meet Trillin in person, soak up his insight into decades of comedic culinary consumption and even pick up a signed copy of his latest work.

Whether you’re a longtime fan of his work or you’ve never set your sights on this writer’s sardonic style, it’s sure to be a night of belly laughs that you won’t want to miss!

Can’t wait? Tweet Crazy For Calvin @SauceMagazine and enter to win passes to the private reception with Trillin before the event and a signed copy of his new book.
