Patti Smith is Everywhere

I know you are all excited about the non-fiction book club’s discussion of Patti Smith’s National Book Award winning memoir Just Kids this Thursday, November 3rd at 6:30pm. You’ve probably even finished the book already. Well here’s some extra credit for you and further proof of the cultural status and influence of one Patti Smith.

In the October 10th New Yorker, she’s written a beautiful and short reminisce of the early onset of her kleptomaniac and francophillic tendencies.
The New York Times Magazine featured a front page article on October 14th, in which she discusses, among other things, her writing process for Just Kids.
And if you want to see some of her work live and in person, the Wadsworth Museum in Hartford is featuring some of her photographs in an show called Camera Solo, on display through Feburary 19, 2012.
