A Busy Week for Patti Smith

by |

'Just Kids' book jacketPatti Smith‘s got a lot going on in the coming weeks and months: sold-out Bowery Ballroom concerts; “Objects of Life” show with Steven Sebring at the Robert Miller Gallery; new book, Just Kids (pictured, right); poetry reading with Sam Shepard at the 92nd Street Y and of course, POV’s Patti Smith: Dream of Life, which airs tomorrow on her birthday, Wednesday, December 30 at 9 PM (check local listings). You can hear Patti talking about her many projects with Senior Correspondent Jeffrey Brown on the PBS NewsHour Art Beat blog. Then on Wednesday, December 30, catch Steven and Patti on NPR’s “Talk of the Nation,” which should be fascinating. (Find a station and airtimes here: http://www.npr.org/templates/stations/schedule/index.php?prgId=5.)

Happy New Year, everyone, and happy birthday, Patti!

    “Dream Of Life” was a great show. This is why I watch PBS. I have always been a Patti Smith fan. Both of her music and her writing. Thanks PBS and POV.

    I watched the documentary for a long time and kept wondering what in the world it was it all about. I agree with billerubin. I don’t support PBS because of programs like this one. It is interesting that programs like Lawrence Welk are shown during the fundraising time.

    Dear patti and steven, Collaboration is an art in itself and a special kind of giving. This memorial allows all to witness how a so so private woman and a good mother continues to be strong for family by creating art for and with those she trusts and loves.

    Thanks for this article, only problem is, I can’t seem to see the actual list in this article. Perhaps it was taken down because this article is a few years old? Would be great to see it, even if it’s an “old list”. Thanks!
