Books & BrewsJoin Books & Brews to discuss Just Kids by Patti Smith.  The 2010 National Book Award winner, Just Kids begins as a love story and ends as an elegy. Smith's evocative, honest, and moving coming-of-age story reveals her extraordinary relationship with artist Robert Mapplethorpe. It serves as a salute to New York City during the late sixties and seventies and to its rich and poor, its hustlers and hellions. A true fable, it is a portrait of two young artists' ascent, a prelude to fame. Books & Brews meets in the meeting room at Seth's Coffee in Little Chute. Grab a drink and join us! New members welcome! Sep 8 - 7:00 pm Seth's Coffee (106 E Main St, Little Chute)
