The Grateful Dead celebrates 50 years since the band's start this year.
Larry Smith and Rachel Fershleisser of SMITH Magazine tell us about the wildly popular initiative in which they urge readers of their online magazine to contribute six-word stories about their lives. The results have spawned books, a Japanese translation, a multi-city live performance series and a teen website with a rabid fan base.
Here & Now listeners wrote their own six-word memoirs and we’ve assembled this little book of them. Write your own in the comments below and we’ll add it in volume two.
We now have a digital bookshelf! Explore all our books coverage or browse by genre.
