Janis Joplin: Rise Up Singing

by Ann Angel

Forty years after her death, Janis Joplin remains among the most compelling and influential figures in rock-and-roll history. Her story–told here with depth and sensitivity by author Ann Angel–is one of a girl who struggled against rules and limitations, yet worked diligently to improve as a singer. It’s the story of an outrageous rebel who wanted to be loved, and of a wild woman who wrote long, loving letters to her mom. And finally, it’s the story of one of the most iconic female musicians in American history, who died at twenty-seven.

Includes more than sixty photographs, and an assortment of anecdotes from Janis’s friends and band mates.

INCLUSION CRITERIA
