Larry Smith, the creator of the Six-Word Memoir project, heads back to Booksmith with his newest anthology, celebrating the stories and voices of immigrants.
Six Words Fresh Off the Boat captures hundreds of memoirs on the experience of immigration from across America, spanning cultures and generations. With contributors including Aziz Ansari, Junot Diaz and George Takei, as well as the cast and creative team of the ABC series Fresh Off the Boat and dozens of refugees, students, soldiers, athletes, and others, the collection paints a powerful portrait of who people are as a country, and where they came from. Larry Smith hosts an evening that will include video, readings and backstories by local contributors, and a Six-Word Slam for audience participation. Join them.
Free and an RSVP is appreciated but not required.
