Joanna Newsom is among the most critically lionized American musicians to emerge in the past decade” (New York Times). City Arts & Lectures is thrilled to have enticed the singer, songwriter, and harpist back to town after her sold-out appearance at the Fox Theater. The pairing – one of music’s most literary-minded artists, and one of San Francisco’s favorite authors (whose far-ranging tastes include a well documented appreciation of Ms. Newsom’s music) – promises a fascinating conversation about Newsom’s widely acclaimed recent album Divers, the creative process, artistic influences and more.
