Journalist, humorist, and devoted eater, Calvin Trillin is a most beloved chronicler of culture. His long association with The New Yorker Magazine began in 1963 with his U.S. Journal articles, compiled as he traveled the country, searching for obscure stories and developing a taste for regional delicacies. Though his writing about food began as comic relief from his more serious pieces, it has earned him a dedicated readership and has been collected in multiple books. Calvin Trillin is also a board member of City Arts & Lectures.
