Like most of you I'm an avid reader. I'm hoping to re-connect with old friends, make new friends, and of course spread the love of reading and writing around to everyone!
Tonight's event was amazing! Patti Smith is a no frills, down to earth, authentically cool person. She read from M Train (which means Mind Train), signed ticket holders copies, answered people's questions, sang 'Because The Night' with her son on acoustic guitar, but most importantly she gave me hope in the creative process again. She said:
"Create because you have to."
"The blurbs I write for others are because I liked the book, not because I know the author."
