“Some things melt before they become memories,” artist, author, and poet Patti Smith says in her latest book, Devotion. Smith’s tapestry of memories is a rich one, and much of her source material is the intricacies and difficulties of feeling love. In 2010, she delivered Just Kids — the hauntingly descriptive tale of her relationship with Robert Mapplethorpe. It was 2015’s M Train that gave insight into her marriage with the late Fred “Sonic” Smith and her life in Michigan. In Devotion, Smith offers a glimpse into the alchemy of her art, her creative process, and the love that is required to create. Melt into her words as the author reads from her latest work on a night made for lovers.

Patti Smith will read from her latest book 'Devotion' at 7 p.m. at Detroit Film Theatre; 5200 Woodward Ave., Detroit; 313-833-7900;; Tickets are $20 and include a hard copy of ‘Devotion’; There will not be a signing following the event.
