Patti Smith – Write On!!

Patti Smith has called on publishers and readers not to let technology kill off traditional books.

The singer made the statement after winning a National Book Award for her memoir, Just Kids. She collected a $10,000 (£6,250) prize for winning the non-fiction category at the awards ceremony in New York last night (November 17), reports BBC News.

“There is nothing more beautiful than the book, the paper, the font, the cloth,” she said. “Please never abandon the book.”

Her memoir, which won the non-fiction prize, trails her youth in New York in the 1960s.
