Patti Smith – 1979 Poster For Poetry Reading In Lawrence, Kansas
A scarce poster for a poetry reading by Patti Smith on June 2, 1979 at the Off-the-Wall Hall in Lawrence, Kansas. The reading was scheduled for 4:o0 PM, and later that evening, The Patti Smith Group performed at the Lawrence Opera House. This reading was presented by James Grauerholz, most famous for being a close friend, bibliographer, and after his death, the literary executor of William S. Burroughs, perhaps the most famous resident of Lawrence.
This is the only example we have seen of this rare poster. 11″ x 17″, in excellent condition, with a tiny, barely noticeable edge tear to the bottom center.
