Fans of Patti Smith are about to get an even closer look at the musician with a new version of her award-winning memoir, Just Kids, due out next month.

The new release will include a new introduction written by Smith, as well as never-before-seen pictures. The new material will bring it up to 384 pages. The book will be released Oct. 23, but it is available for pre-order now.

Just Kids is a memoir of Smith's time in New York with photographer Robert Mapplethorpe. It was first released in 2010 and went on to win the National Book Award. Smith followed up in 2015 with another memoir, M Train.

Smith will perform this weekend as part of one of two benefit concerts for Pathway to Paris, a charity dedicated to fighting climate change co-founded by Smith's daughter Jesse Paris Smith. The performances are "a call to action, urging the international community to ramp up ambition towards a climate-safe future for all." Tickets are on sale now right here on AXS, ranging from $39.50 to $99.50.
