Six Words For Mother’s Day: New Video + Live Show!

Six Words from SMITH Magazine’s next “Six Words and More Live” show is extra special for a few reasons. This show is our first collaboration with PEN World Voices International Festival, as well as our debut at the so-cool STREB space in Williamsburg. It’s also special because of the date: May 10—Mother’s Day—and as you might guess, the theme is all about moms.

Then there’s the line-up: We’ll hear stories from Grammy-winner Dan Zanes; Orange is the New Black and Jane the Virgin’s Diane Guerrero; Little White Lie filmmaker Lacey Schwartz; writer Said Sayrafiezadeh, Breakthough.tv’s VP Lynn Harris; McNally Jackson Books owner Sarah McNally, and, introducing… my former student Gali Netter. Our format remains the same: Each storyteller starts with a Six-Word Memoir and then tells the backstory in 6-10 minutes.

We’ll start off the show with this new video loop of “Six-Word MOMoirs” (see above) created by SMITH Mag’s talented and versatile intern McKenzie Merriman.

Get brunch and then come check out the show this Mother’s Day.
