From a teenage star to a respected songwriting veteran, Janis Ian has seen a lot in her 4 decades in music. So instead of writing lyrics she's now written a memoir, 'Society's Child: My Autobiography.' Recently in Studio-A, Janis spoke with John Platt about the inspiration and process behind the book, and performed a mix of known and new songs live.
