Patti Smith
Conversation and performance
December 5, 2022

In an exclusive Los Angeles appearance at the Saban Theater, Patti Smith discusses her new book, A Book of Days, chronicling her life through her Instagram posts. In 2018, Patti Smith posted her first photo on Instagram: her hand with the simple message “Hello Everybody!” Known for shooting with her beloved Land Camera 250, Smith started posting images from her phone which included portraits of her kids, her radiator, her boots, and her Abyssinian cat. Over time, a story of a life devoted to art took shape with more than a million followers responding to her unique and imaginative aesthetic. Smith will take the stage alone to discuss the book, her photographs, play several songs, and talk with the audience about her career.
