Queen of California, Lady of the Canyon, First Lady of Folk… the incomparable Joni Mitchell celebrated her 75th birthday this year. As an exclusive launch event for Canongate’s publication of Morning Glory on the Vine – a reproduction of the handmade book of handwritten lyrics, poems and watercolour paintings made by Joni as a gift for her closest friends almost 40 years ago. Join us as we celebrate all things Joni in a special night of conversation from Barney Hoskyns (Reckless Daughter: A Joni Mitchell Anthology), Kat Lister and Ella Rooke (My Blue) chaired by Georgina Godwin plus a live performance of Joni’s music by Ella Rooke and her band.
