If you’re a teen, have a teen, know a teen, or are suspected of once being a teen, we cordially invite you to a very special Six-Word Memoir Reading & Open Slam at the NY Public Library, this Tuesday, November 10, 5pm.
Thousands of teens have flocked to SMITH Teens to share their life stories in six words. We’ve put hundreds of them in our latest book, I Can’t Keep My Own Secrets: Six-Word Memoirs by Teens Famous & Obscure, which NYT’s columnist David Carr calls it “Fab…a must read,” while Publishers Weekly writes: “The range of powerful emotions, expressed in just a few words, is an ideal oick for teens seeking evocative, easily relatable stories.” Our evening and open-to-all-teens slam at the library should be a memorable night of self-expression, storytelling, and secret-sharing. Teens, we hope you’ll arrive psyched to read a six-word memoir on stage—you’re what will make this night amazing.
