Jane Gilchrist from the Library of Congress speaks with author and songwriter Jewel, who will appear at the 2012 Library of Congress National Book Festival on Sept. 22-23, on the National Mall in Washington, D.C.
Jewel Kilcher says she got her love of language from her father, Yule, while she was growing up in Alaska, raised in a saddle barn. Perhaps best known as a singer-songwriter, Jewel has sold more than 27 million records. Her new book, “That’s What I Do,” was written as a celebration of her newborn son in the form of a lullaby. In 1998, she published a book of poetry called “A Night Without Armor.”
