Kudos to Patti Smith for winning the National Book Award for nonfiction this week.
I sort of reviewed Just Kids way back in July and I liked the book for somewhat sentimental reasons. I think I wanted more rock-n-roll anecdotes but that's not necessarily what her memoir was about.
Now you can hear Patti read from Just Kids via KQED's weekly series, The Writers' Block.
I've embedded the player below but you can also click here for the Patti Smith episode of the podcast.
