This Saturday, author Calvin Trillin will deliver the Mercantile Library’s XXth Niehoff lecture. We can’t wait. We love Calvin Trillin. To help you get into the Niehoff spirit, here’s a run-down of some random Trillin-flavored riches I turned up thanks to a cursory Google search.
– The Nation’s bio of the Great Man, followed by a list of links to his poetry and articles
– Trillin interviewed on Salon
– An interview from Powell’s with a somewhat hackey title
– Trillin experimenting with advanced parking technology (includes video)
– Trillin interviews Frank McCourt while guest hosting the Charlie Rose Show (skip to 23:40, or face the Coldplay-related consequences)
– Norm De Plume
