February 14: “Married by Elvis: Divorced by Friday”: Six-Word Memoir Show & Story Slam

Monday, January 24th, 2011

By Larry Smith


“Silently suffered his facial hair experiments.”
“Husband won’t confirm Facebook status.”
“Arranged marriage now sounding pretty good.”
“Engaged in Jerusalem. Thank you, God.”
“My mother warned me about you.”

Whether you’re spending the evening with that special someone or taking a stand against romance, come out for a night of Six-Word Memoirs on Love and Heartbreak at the 92YTribeca (a space you’ll fall in love with). The line-up of storytellers includes Deb Kogan (Shutterbabe), Elizabeth Wurtzel (Prozac Nation), Baratunde Thurston (The Onion), Darin Strauss (Half a Life), Rachel Sklar (Mediate), Michele Carlo (Fish Out of Agua), Sara Barron (People are Unappealing), and Kimberly Kaye (”The Trouble With Poet” blog), of all who will tell the backstories behind their six words. We’ll give away some signed copies of Six-Word Memoirs on Love & Heartbreak, as well as books from many of the featured performers.

Be in the show. Two memoirists who leave six words on love an/or heartbreak on our Event Wall will be invited to tell a backstory on the stage. And—you’ll like this—Michael Hearst of One Ring Zero will turn some of your Six-Word Memoirs from the Wall into very short songs. At the end of the evening, everyone will have the chance to share a Six-Word Memoir during the audience participation Six-World Slam. Then we invite you to hang out by the 92YTribeca’s beautiful bar and share more stories and drinks.

Tickets: $10 in advance, $12 at the door. The show starts at 7pm. The 92YTribeca is located at 200 Hudson St. in downtown NYC.
