Writer Calvin Trillin may be best known for his humorous takes on current events in the New Yorker and the Nation, but serious eaters know him for his trilogy of food books, American Fried; Alice, Let’s Eat and Third Helpings.

Trillin joins KQED host Michael Krasny in conversation Sunday, March 11 at the French Garden in Sebastopol. The evening includes a champagne reception, gourmet dinner and the two speakers, beginning at 5pm. Tickets at seb.org or by calling 823-1511.
