Judy Collins is one of the reigning icons of folk music. Over her illustrious career, she has recorded more than fifty albums, including Wildflowers, Judith, and A Maid of Constant Sorrow. Known to her fans as Judy Blue Eyes,  Collins has also written several books, including her 2012 memoir Sweet Judy Blue Eyes: My Life in Music, a highly evocative memoir highlighting the ‘60s, when hits like “Both Sides Now” catapulted her to international fame. Her forthcoming book Cravings: How I Conquered Food, is a deeply personal account of her tumultuous and fraught relationship with food and how her issues with overeating and addiction nearly claimed her career and her life.  

Michael Krasny is a Professor of English and American Literature and author of the books, Off Mike: A Memoir of Talk Radio and Literary Life and Spiritual Envy: An Agnostic’s Search. Since 1993 he has been the host of “Forum,” a news and public affairs interview program produced at KQED Radio. His most recent book is Let There be Laughter.
