The Pat Parker/Vito Russo Library Book Discussion
"Just Kids" by Patti Smith

Join us for a discussion of this National Book Award-winning memoir about photographer Smith and her relationship with Robert Mapplethorpe in 1970s NYC.

Though they weren't always famous, they always thought they would be. They found each other, adrift but determined, on the streets of New York City in the late '60s and made a pact to keep each other afloat until they found their voices—or the world was ready to hear them.

Smith's memoir is tender and artful, open-eyed but surprisingly decorous, balanced by her powers of observation and memory for everyday details.

Made possible by support from the Kors Le Pere Foundation.
