I remember so vividly getting Carole King's Tapestry album for my 16th birthday. And I played it over and over. I still love it. And I knew that she was part of a song writing team with Gerry Goffin. But I didn't know anything about her life. So I found her memoir entertaining, fun, sad, poignant and so many other adjectives. I shared some aspects of my early childhood with Ms. King: learned how to play piano from the same book (Teaching Little Fingers to Play), rolled my hair on orange juice cans to try to make it straight, and found an identity in the Rocky Mountain West. It was fascinating to read how she juggled a career with being a wife and mother and how she finally determined who she was. And that she had to have music in her life for her to be the person she was meant to be.
