Judy Collins | Cravings: How I Conquered Food

Wed, March 1, 2017 7:30 P.M.
Parkway Central Library

Cost: FREE

In conversation with Laura Kovacs

Popularly beloved as “Judy Blue Eyes,” eclectic singer-songwriter Judy Collins has delighted audiences for decades with such albums as A Maid of Constant Sorrow and Wildflowers. The latter album’s lead single, “Both Sides, Now”—penned for her by friend Joni Mitchell—brought her worldwide fame. She is a four-time Grammy nominee, a documentary Oscar nominee, and is currently a UNICEF representative on the campaign for the abolition of landmines. In Cravings, Collins tells the story of her charged history with food, the countless diet plans and weight-loss gurus she encountered over the years, and the measured solution she found to her addiction. 

Please allow extra time to get to Parkway Central, due to extensive road work in the area.
