Patti Smith is in town

Patti Smith is in town for the Bergenfest festival.
Saturday afternoon she signed copies of her novel "Just Kids" recently out on Samlaget publishers, and translated into Norwegian by Brit Bildøen.

I have already read "Just Kids" in English (blog post), so I sneaked in with a copy of "Seventh Heaven" (1971) in hand, just before she was ready to finish the signing session.

It seems like more people than me believe that a signature is adding value to a book, or is it just a celebrity issue? I admit I was a bit starstruck!
