with Holly George-Warren

This event is a Core Conversation at the 2020 Pittsburgh Humanities Festival. See the full Core Conversation lineup here.

Holly George-Warren is one of the most highly regarded chroniclers of American music history. Her latest work is a blazingly intimate biography, illuminating the Queen of Rock & Roll as a true rule-breaking musical trailblazer and a complicated, uncompromising artistic revolutionary. Unprecedented access to Janis Joplin’s family, friends, band mates, archives, and long-lost interviews yielded this complex, rewarding portrait of a remarkable artist finally getting her due.

Holly George-Warren is a two-time GRAMMY® nominee and the award-winning author of sixteen books, including the New York Times bestseller The Road to Woodstock (with Michael Lang, Ecco, 2009) and the new biography Janis: Her Life and Music (Simon and Schuster, 2019).
