To celebrate Women’s History Month, author Holly George-Warren will team up with singer Mary Bridget Davies next month at the Rock Hall for a special program celebrating 1995 Inductee Janis Joplin.

A two-time Grammy nominee, George-Warren has penned 16 books, including the biography Janis: Her Life and Music. George-Warren will discuss how Joplin became a “rule-breaking musical trailblazer” and “complicated, gender-bending rebel.”

Tony nominee Mary Bridget Davies, who portrayed Janis Joplin on Broadway in A Night with Janis Joplin, will give an acoustic performance followed by a book signing with George-Warren.



The event takes place at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, March 18. Tickets cost $15.

Tickets are $15.

George-Warren will also host a gallery talk at 1 p.m. that same day outside of the San Francisco case in the Museum’s Cities and Sounds exhibit. That event is included with a general admission ticket.
