Rock and Roll Hall of Famer and New Jersey native Patti Smith will make a rare appearance “in conversation” at the new Indigo bookstore at the Mall at Short Hills, Nov. 27 at 7 p.m. According to the store’s web site, “Line-up will be available on a first-come, first-served basis.”

The appearance is scheduled to last until 8 p.m. No other details are available.

The store, which opened in September, is the first United States outlet for Indigo, which is the largest bookstore chain in Canada. The Short Hills location takes up 30,000 square feet and sells electronics, jewelry, kitchen accessories and other items, in addition to books.

Though mainly known as a singer-songwriter, Smith has written about 20 books — mostly of her poetry and song lyrics, but also the acclaimed memoirs “Just Kids” (2010) and “M Train” (2015). She has not released a new studio album since Banga, in 2012.


Since launching in September 2014,, a 501(c)(3) organization, has become one of the most important media outlets for the Garden State arts scene. And it has always offered its content without a subscription fee, or a paywall. Its continued existence depends on support from members of that scene, and the state’s arts lovers.
