TUESDAY PICK | Books & Bars discusses Patti Smith's "Just Kids"

Books & Bars, says Courtney Algeo, "is something that those who like a free show, enjoy discovering new books, and who need a reason to go out and have a few drinks should experience at least once." Today the popular open book club meets at St. Paul's hottest new venue, the Amsterdam Bar & Hall, to discuss Just Kids (2010), Patti Smith's acclaimed memoir of her friendship with photographer Robert Mapplethorpe. If the late, controversial photographer was working in Minnesota today, would he get Legacy money? Discuss.


Coverage of issues and events affecting Central Corridor communities is funded in party by a grant from the Central Corridor Collaborative.
