B.W.'s PLAYLIST/ KHSU, 90.5/ SAT., 20 NOV. 2010

Poet, artist, musician, composer and activist Patti Smith now can add a National Book Award to her mountain of accolades. Her memoir, Just Kids, about her intense creative and personal relationship with photographer Robert Mapplethorpe won 2010's award for Non Fiction. Well-written and unsentimental view of growing up in NY during the 1970's and 1980's. Congratulations Ms. Smith, a well-deserved recipient!
