Purchase M Train
Patti Smith will tour the country to celebrate the release of her memoir, M Train, this fall. A coffee-saturated odyssey into the mind of a legendary artist, M Train is told through the prism of the cafes and haunts Smith has worked in around the world.
The book tour will kick off in New York on publication day, October 6, with an event at the New York Public Library. She will make stops in Washington D.C., Boston, Chicago, Atlanta, Los Angeles and more throughout October and November. All of the events will include a reading and conversation, and a free copy of M Train is included with the purchase of each ticket. The 19-date tour wraps Sunday, November 22 in Seattle, Washington.
