She redefined rock and roll for a generation - now Patti Smith has something new and beautiful to share

About this Event

She redefined rock and roll for a generation, defied conventional expectations at every turn, and created enough zeitgeist-shaping art for more than one lifetime. Now Patti Smith has something new and beautiful to share: a “beautiful, elegant, and poetic” (NPR) memoir chronicling a transformational year of personal loss, cross-country travel, and political upheaval. Year of the Monkey reprises the spellbinding storytelling we all fell in love with in her National Book Award-winning Just Kids and bestselling M Train, conjuring the complexity and magic of an extraordinary dreamer’s inner life. In this unique experience, Patti will play a few songs with longtime band mate Tony Shanahan and share passages from Year of the Monkey.
