WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

When Ernest Hemingway wrote the six-word novel For Sale. Baby's Shoes. Never Worn, he didn't know that he would inspire one of the hottest storytelling trends of the Internet age: the Six-Word Memoir. More than 200,000 six-word life stories have been submitted to the storytelling community, (SMITH), which has just compiled some of the best ones in a new book called It All Changed in an Instant: More Six-Word Memoirs by Writers Famous & Obscure. Be part of a unique live event that fuses confessional culture, writing, music, video and (indeed brief) audience participation. Join Amy Sohn, the author of Prospect Park West, A.J. Jacobs, the author of The Guinea Pig Diaries, Ben Yagoda, author of Memoir: A HistorySMITH magazine, for an evening of very short true tales about the Big Apple. Bring your six words and be part of the show!
