.Journo God Descends Upon Book Passage

Corte Madera


Book Passage hosts a conversation between Calvin Trillin and Michael Krasny, centered around Trillin’s latest work, The Lede: Dispatches From A Life In The Press. This rare event is scheduled for 1pm, Saturday, Feb. 24, at 51 Tamal Vista, Corte Madera. Admission is free, which we journos find astounding given that Trillin is one of journalism’s most distinguished figures. The Lede provides a captivating look at journalism and its architects, as seen through the lens of Trillin’s unmatched six-decade tenure as a bestselling author and a stalwart of The New Yorker. Dwight Garner of The New York Times remarks, “’The Lede’ contains profiles… that are acknowledged classics of the form and will be studied until A.I. makes hash out of all of us.” Trillin himself shares, “I’ve been writing about the press almost as long as I’ve been in the game. At some point, it occurred to me that disparate pieces from various places in various styles amounted to a picture from multiple angles of what the press has been like over the years since I became a practitioner and an observer.” For more details, visit bookpassage.com.
