Sheila Weller

Sheila Weller, journalist and New York Times best-selling author, has forged her career with her scintillating true life tales drawn directly from the news. Her most recent book, Girls Like Us: Carole King, Joni Mitchell, Carly Simon – And the Journey of a Generation, presents an insightful and detailed portrayal of music's three most trailblazing and beloved singer-songwriters. It also charts the course of the generation of middle-class women born in the early-mid-1940s who were little girls in the stultifying 1950s, came of age in the thrilling and turbulent late 1960s, and went on to create second-wave feminism.
