Janis Ian - Society's Child (Episode #1233)

KQED Life: Sun, Nov 18, 2012 -- 6:00 PM

Grammy Award winning and beloved singer/song writer Janis Ian catapulted into the spot light at fifteen when her soul-wrenching song Society's Child became a hit. Later when she released her legendary At Seventeen she achieved worldwide fame. After seven hit albums in as many years she walked away from the music industry, but when she returned a decade later she continued to give the world her beautiful music. Now, with her autobiography Society's Child, Janis gives us an honest account of her successes and failures and leaves us with a message of hope and gratitude.
