Hear Patti Smith Read From ‘Just Kids’

November 29, 2010

Hear Patti on this link at the finalist readings for the National Book Award. It’s seven minutes, both funny (her first meeting with Alan Ginsberg) and moving (her last letter to Robert Mapplethorpe).

    PS: There’s more! This is a link to a 54 minute video interview “Patti Smith talks books with Jonathan Lethem.”
    She talks about her love of books, how she wrote “Just Kids”, and answers questions from the audience. She wrote her book for Robert and also because she “wanted people to know Robert as I had known him.” She is warm, down-to-earth and wise.
