Arthur Golden made an “imaginative leap into the mind of the character” when he wrote Memoirs of a Geisha and WTCI supporters will be able to join Alison Lebovitz as she interviews him with a live studio audience for an inaugural signature fundraising event. Studio 45 will celebrate the locally produced show, The A List with Alison Lebovitz, while offering guests entertainment, food stations and silent auction items that spotlight Chattanooga and the local WTCI-PBS brand.
Studio 45 will be held at the WTCI-PBS studios on March 7 and will feature a live interview with celebrity author Arthur Golden. Mr. Golden was born in Chattanooga, is a graduate of the Baylor School, son of Ruth Holmberg and great-grandson of newspaper legend and Chattanooga legend Adolph Ochs. Memoirs of a Geisha has been translated into 32 languages and was on the New York Times bestseller list for two years.
