Calvin Trillin Honored at Moth Ball

The Moth presented acclaimed journalist, novelist, and humorist Calvin Trillin with the Moth Storytelling Award at its annual Moth Ball on Tuesday, November 16th at Capitale in New York City.

A strong literary voice chronicling the American scene for more than four decades, Trillin has taken storytelling to new heights in every conceivable genre and medium from childhood memoir to food essay to political satire. His diverse and prolific career includes contributing to the New Yorker since 1963 and writing his weekly “Deadline Poet” column for the Nation since 1990.
