Chabon, the Pulitzer Prize-winning novelist, will host a discussion among himself and the two celebrated composers. Announced Monday by the MacDowell Colony for artists, the event will be Dec. 3 at the New Museum of Con-temporary Art in New York City.
Chabon is chairman of MacDowell, based in New Hampshire and one of the country’s oldest and most prestigious artist colonies.
Garth Brooks plans live broadcast of show
NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Garth Brooks is taking his intimate one-man Las Vegas show to live television.
A news release issued Monday says CBS will broadcast Brooks’ performance at the Wynn Las Vegas live Nov. 29.
Brooks came out of retirement in 2009 for a series of occasional gigs at Steve Wynn’s invitation. Brooks formally ended that run after three years, but has played occasionally since then.
The broadcast will be his final performance of the show, which has mostly been Brooks with just his guitar exploring his musical influences with fans.
