Patti Smith comes to Cambridge on one of only three nights in the UK to talk about her powerful memoir Year of the Monkey. Following on from her previous bestsellers Just Kids and M Train, Year of the Monkey tells more of her poignant story, tackling loss, ageing, and a dramatic shift in the political landscape of America. A rare chance to hear from this diverse artist unparalleled in vision and eloquence. 
Patti Smith is in conversation with Tom Gatti, Deputy Editor of the New Statesman, and will also perform with musician Tony Shanahan.
