Speaker Biography: Jewel Kilcher says she got her love of language from her grandfather 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'd Do" (Simon & Schuster), 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."
