Trillinmania Grips Local Library Staff, Members


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)
