Shawn Colvin, the Grammy Award-winning singer-songwriter, is working on a memoir, A Few Small Repairs, named for her best-known album and tentatively scheduled to come out in the fall 2009.

According to HarperCollins, the book ‘‘will finally allow all of the fans that have followed her career over the past 19 years to further connect with her on a personal level that only a book could allow.

‘‘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.
