Win the Companion Book

In honor of the broadcast of Patti Smith: Dream of Life and Patti's birthday, we're giving away 10 copies of the companion book!

The book Patti Smith: Dream of Life is filled with more than 400 pages of evocative photographs, and beautifully published by Rizzoli press. Elle magazine says: "Coffee-table books, by definition, aren't meant to be page-turners. Except for this month's Patti Smith: Dream of Life, which isn't so much a glossy centerpiece as it is an addictive pictorial of the godmother of punk's life as a poet, activist, mother, style icon, and all-around kick-ass front woman." Read more about the book at Amazon.
