The Writing Life
September 27, 2017
Ira Allen Chapel
Writer, humorist, and regular contributor to The New Yorker since 1963, Calvin Trillin takes an antic look at writing as an occupation in a country in which the shelf life of a book is “somewhere between milk and yogurt.”
Co-sponsored with the Office of the President, University of Vermont
