Smith and Ginsberg

Open Culture (found via Poetry Foundation) has posted a link to a video of two versions of Patti Smith reading Allen Ginsberg’s Footnote to Howl in a performance for the Dalai Lama. They also recount the lovely story of Smith and Ginsberg meeting.

The link and two videos of Smith’s performances are here.
