Conversations in the Arts: Patti Smith @ Columbia College

Shake off the Thanksgiving coma, summon some ambition, and head to Columbia College's Film Row Cinema (1104 S. Wabash Ave.) Tuesday to see National Book Award winner and "Godmother of Punk" Patti Smith talk about Just Kids, a reflection on her relationship with photographer Robert Mapplethorpe. Be aware: the event is full, though walk-up registration will be provided.
