SHE'S ELECTRIC: Calvin and Alice
We were caught staring, weepy-eyed, at the above photo of CALVIN TRILLIN and his wife, Alice, in which they look like the happiest, you-wish-you-had-their-relationship couple we’ve seen since the glory days of Adam Brody and Rachel Bilson. But really, we couldn’t help ourselves. Neither can Trillin — he’s written about his life with Alice throughout his career at the New Yorker. After her death, he wrote the short yet sweet About Alice, which offers even more insight into her creativity, smarts, wit, and beauty; it’s tender and funny stuff, minus the sap. Trillin pays tribute to his lady love with Christopher Lydon at the First Unitarian Church, 3 Church St, Cambridge | 6:30 pm | $14.95 [includes a book] | 617.661.READ.
