A contributor to the New Yorker for fifty years, he is particularly admired for his writing about food and crime, a combination we leave to more subtle minds to untangle. He is the winner of the Thurber Prize for American Humor for his collection, Quite Enough of Calvin Trillin: Forty Years of Funny Stuff. On this episode, recorded in front of a live audience at 92YTribeca, he is buoyed by the Celtic fiddler Cleek Shrey. That’s entertainment.
- PERSON: Emanuel "Wally" Popolizio, head of the New York City Housing Authority from 1986-1990
- PLACE: Bull on top of American Hereford Association, Kansas City
- THING: His barn in Nova Scotia (not actually Trillin's barn)
Many of you have asked how you can help 92Y as we confront tremendous financial losses due to COVID-19. Your generous gift will help sustain our beloved institution and will also support the creation of new, online programming that will bring comfort and inspiration to our community.
Together, we will get through this. Thank you.
