An Evening With Patti Smith: The Year of The Monkey at ARSHT

Dec 17, 2019, 7:30PM

From the National Book Award-winning author of Just Kids and M Train, Patti Smith presents Year of the Monkey, a profound, beautifully realized memoir in which dreams and reality are vividly woven into a tapestry of one transformative year.

For Smith – inveterately curious, always exploring, tracking thoughts, writing – the year evolves as one of reckoning with the changes in life’s gyre: with loss, aging, and a dramatic shift in the political landscape of America. In a stranger’s words, “Anything is possible: after all, it’s the Year of the Monkey.” Riveting, elegant, often humorous, illustrated by Smith’s signature Polaroids, Year of the Monkey is a moving and original work, a touchstone for our turbulent times.
