The Grammy Awards, which took place February 10th, announced the winner of this year’s Grammy Award for Best Spoken Word Album:
Society’s Child by Janis Ian
An autobiography read by author Janis Ian. In this fascinating memoir of her more than 40 years in the music business, Ian chronicles how she did drugs with Jimi Hendrix, went shopping for Grammy clothes with Janis Joplin, and sang with Mel Tormé, all the while never ceasing to create unforgettable music. In Society’s Child, Janis Ian provides a relentlessly honest account of the successes and failures – and the hopes and dreams – of an extraordinary life.
