Patti Smith presents M Train
Tickets $25 (includes book)
Patti Smith, legendary musician and National Book Award-winning author of Just Kids, returns to memoir with her new book M Train. With prose that shifts between dreams and reality, and across a landscape of creative inspiration, M Train illustrates Smith’s deepest literary obsessions, augmented by her own stunning black-and-white Polaroids. Woven through accounts of days in Mexico, Berlin, Michigan and Greenwich Village are Smith’s reflections on the writer's craft and on artistic creation, along with the irremediable loss of her husband, guitarist Fred Sonic Smith. Loss, as well as the consolation we might salvage from it, lies at the heart of this exquisite meditation on endings and on beginnings. Greenlight and St. Joseph’s College host Smith for a reading and discussion of her work. Book signing to follow.
