With her debut memoir Just Kids, Patti Smith proved her literary voice to be just as powerful as her musical one. Her new memoir, M Train, holds the same elegant prose and tells more of her powerful, poignant story. Smith comes to LIVE to discuss this new work.  

PATTI SMITH is the author of Just Kids, which won the National Book Award in 2010, and of five collections of poetry. Her seminal album Horses has been hailed as one of the top 100 albums of all time. In 2005, the French Ministry of Culture awarded Smith the title of Commandeur des Arts et des Lettres; she was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2007. She lives in New York City.
