Lunch with Calvin Trillin!

How would you (and a friend) like to have lunch with Calvin Trillin at a Vietnamese restaurant of your choice?? Literary Arts is offering a chance for you to do just that! Raffle tickets cost $25 each, or five for $100 and can be purchased at Broadway Books (cash or check only, please). Only 200 tickets max will be sold for each drawing, so your chances are good. The lunch will take place on February 17th, and Mr. Trillin will be speaking that night as part of the Portland Arts & Lectures series. Included in lunch -- besides his scintillating conversation -- will be an autographed book. Mr. Trillin's most recent book is Deciding the Next Decider: The 2008 Presidential Race in Rhyme. He is also the author of the moving memoir about his wife Alice, entitled, not surprisingly, About Alice, as well as several other collections of essays (many about food) and collections of humorous political rhymes. The winning ticket will be drawn February 10th from the stage at the Elizabeth Gilbert/Ann Patchett lecture. As they say about the lottery, you can't win if you don't play!
