Suburbarazzi Week in Review on RNN: LoHud Halloween costumes, Charles Grodin’s book and Al Roker’s reports from the ‘Office’ convention • 10.31.07
This week’s quiz: When Pound Ridge resident Tim Robbins took the Webster Hall stage at an Oct. 17 tribute concert, he sang songs originally performed by the artist being honored that night. Who was this man of honor?
A. Bob Dylan
B. Woodie Guthrie
C. Pete Seeger
The answer is at the end of the video or after the break.
Actor, 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!
