The Brooklyn Book Festival is pleased to announce a special presentation by iconic artist, performer, and author Patti Smith to coincide with the release of her new book Devotion. Two companion essays and a beautifully crafted tale about a tragic young skater comprise this deeply personal look into the alchemy of Smith’s creative process. Patti Smith will present Devotion beneath the beautiful, vaulted ceilings of St. Ann and the Holy Trinity Church.
Presented by Brooklyn Book Festival (BKBF) and Windham-Campbell Prizes with Books are Magic. This event is part of the week-long Brooklyn Book Festival Bookend Events taking place throughout New York City and culminating with the BKBF Children’s Day on September 16 in MetroTech Commons, and Festival Day in Downtown Brooklyn on Sunday, September 17.
