After much searching and trying things, I finally found something that I think works.

Using your current setup, Thunderbird 52.2.1 64-bit, with Lightning and Google provider 3.3 add-ons:
1. Add a new calendar choosing On the Network.
2. Choose Format: CalDAV
3. Set Location (this is the critical component)

The absolutely necessary piece is the /events at the end of the URL.  This is what I found to work for me.  Hopefully it helps you, too.

Follow this blog post for more information, including how to obtain the CALID:

4. Set the Name, Color, etc
5. When you click Continue, you should get a popup asking for you Gmail login information.  Fill that in.
6. Back in the new calendar wizard, click Done.  You should now have a writable calendar in Thunderbird.

You may get a bunch of old reminders.  Just dismiss them (Dismiss All).  If some won't go away, try restarting TB.  You should probably do that anyway, just to be safe.

Good luck!
