JOPLIN: A New Janis Joplin Biography Is Set For Release


A new biography of Janis Joplin is due out this fall.

“Janis: Her Life and Music” is set to be published October 22nd by Simon & Schuster. The book is authored by two-time Grammy nominee Holly George-Warren, who's written biographies of Alex Chilton and Gene Autry. A press release calls it an intimate biography that establishes Joplin as a rule-breaking trailblazer and a complicated, gender-bending rebel.

The book was possible thanks to unprecedented access to family, friends, bandmates, archives and long lost interviews.
