Hood/Powers Q & A at the Chapel

Wednesday, February 11, 2015 - 10:08am

Thursday the 12th at 4 pm, we're all going to the Chapel for a conversation between great friends of the blog Patterson Hood and Ann Powers:

Ann Powers of NPR and musician Patterson Hood will hold a public conversation on "Our Back Pages: The Music, Books and Movies That Fed Two Creative Lives" Feb. 12 at 4 p.m. in the University of Georgia Chapel.

The event is part of the Global Georgia Initiative, the signature speaker series of the UGA Jane and Harry Willson Center for Humanities and Arts.

Hood is a co-founder and principal singer-songwriter of the Athens band Drive-By Truckers, which has released more than a dozen albums to popular and critical acclaim. 


Powers is a critic and correspondent at NPR Music, where she writes for the music news blog, The Record, and frequently appears on NPR's radio programs. Before joining NPR in 2011, she was the primary pop music critic at the Los Angeles Times. She also worked as a writer and editor at The New York Times, Village Voice and San Francisco Weekly.

Should be great fun. Seating is limited so get there early. Great job, Willson Center.
