Holly George-Warren is a two-time Grammy nominee and the award-winning author of sixteen books, including her most recent biography, Janis: Her Life and Music.


Janis Joplin has passed into legend as a brash, impassioned soul doomed by the pain that produced one of the most extraordinary voices in rock history. But in these pages, Holly George-Warren provides a revelatory and deeply satisfying portrait of a woman who wasn’t all about suffering. Janis was a perfectionist: a passionate, erudite musician who was born with talent but also worked exceptionally hard to develop it. She was a woman who pushed the boundaries of gender and sexuality long before it was socially acceptable. She was a sensitive seeker who wanted to marry and settle down—but couldn’t, or wouldn’t. She was a Texan who yearned to flee Texas but could never quite get away—even after becoming a countercultural icon in San Francisco.

The legend that is Robert Forster will interview Holly at The Soho Sanctum, speaking of her critically acclaimed book Janis. Holly will also feature in other pannels during the festival.
