‘‘In concert Shawn is known for engaging the audience and interweaving dialogue ranging from the very personal to the truly hilarious, so the book will be a natural extension for her,’’ the publisher said in a statement.
Colvin, 53, is known for such records as ‘‘Steady On,’’ ‘‘Fat City’’ and ‘‘A Few Small Repairs,’’ which featured the hit single ‘‘Sunny Came Home’’ and won Grammys for song and album of the year.
