By Larry Smith

SMITH loves hitting the road for live storytelling events and talks. Here’s what’s cooking in the coming weeks.

Six Words on Political Life at the National Constitution Center
More than 25,000 Six-Word Stump Speeches have been shared in our interactive exhibition at Philadephia’s National Constitution Center. On Oct. 29 we’re having a special politically themed story show at the center where six storytellers will start with a stump speech and then tell a longer backstory. Check out the line-up—including local Philly treasures Pierre Robert and Jane Golden—and buy advance tix.

Six Words on Jewish Life:
Our new book, Six-Word Memoirs on Jewish Life, comes alive at a combination of story shows with local talent, and talks from editor Larry Smith. On Nov. 3, we’ll be at the Wilshire Boulevard Temple in Los Angeles for an evening of Jewish-life themed stories from six storytellers. Find out more and get tickets at WBT’s site. And here are six words to sweeten the deal: Free blintzes served following the show.

On Nov. 11, we’re doing a Jewish story show as a part of Philadelphia’s First Person Arts Festival, including a can’t-miss story by author Piper Kerman called, “Bad News, But It’s Not Cancer,” about telling a certain editor of a storytelling community’s Jewish parents she is on her way to prison for a crime she committed a decade earlier. You don’t have to be Jewish to come or love these two shows! Get tickets now—these shows will sell out.

Plus: SMITH’s Larry Smith tells the story of the Six-Word Memoir project and leads the audience into their own Six-Word Slam at book fairs in Cherry Hill, NJ; Houston and Virginia Beach.
