Patti Smith is a special education teacher and writer who lives in Ann Arbor. She is very involved with her community, participating in the storytellers' guild, the public art commission, A2 Geeks, the Rec & Ed Commission, and the local film festival. Patti enjoys boxing, English country dancing, and hosting dinner parties. She hopes to one day sell her young adult novel for at least a three figure advance. Until then, you can find her enjoying her husband and step-cats in the best city on earth! Her newest book, A History of Ann Arbor's People's Food Co-op will be released on April 17. It will be available at the co-op or online.
