'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.

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