Blues singer Janiva Magness presents her memoir at Third Place Books Sunday

Janiva Magness
Grammy nominated Blues singer Janiva Magness will be at Third Place Books on Sunday, with her memoir Weeds Like Us.

She released her fifteenth album this fall, Change in the Weather: Janiva Magness Sings John Fogerty, restyling songs from Fogerty's career from Creedence Clearwater to his solo career.

Her own career in blues was no accident.

According to an article in Broadway World Music, she says that "Blues is a lot more than my vocation. It's been my salvation."

She lost both parents to suicide as a child and was placed in a dozen foster homes. But, inspired by the encouragement of her final foster mother and a galvanizing performance by the legendary bluesman Otis Rush, she found stability and salvation-and, ultimately, triumph-in music.

She will speak and sign copies of her memoir, Weeds Like Us at 6pm Sunday, November 24, 2019, Third Place Books, upper level Town Center, intersection of Bothell and Ballinger Way NE, Lake Forest Park.

Call 206-366-3333 to order a copy of her book.
