Charles Grodin to talk at Armonk library without getting shooshed

grodin.jpgActor, author and former talk-show host Charles Grodin will be heading to the North Castle Public Library in Armonk at 8 p.m., Nov. 10 for a free event to discuss his new book, “If I Only Knew Then.”

Grodin, who had prominent roles in “Midnight Run” and the “Beethoven” franchise, will chat in Whippoorwill Hall about his new book, which includes autobiographical essays about lessons learned by South Nyack resident Rosie O’Donnell, Walter Cronkite, Shirley Maclaine, Paul Newman, Carol Burnett, Regis Philbin and Robert Redford. Grodin, who appeared as a commentator on “60 Minutes II” a few years ago and as a CNBC talk show host in the late ’90s, also wrote an off-Broadway play called “The Right Kind of People” in 2004.

The western Connecticut resident’s no stranger to Westchester County libraries. On April 28, 2002, he appeared at the New Rochelle Public Library as part of an annual CelebriTea event to raise money for that facility.

I’ll be chatting with Grodin this Wednesday afternoon and posting some highlights on Suburbarazzi soon thereafter. So stay tuned!
