SMITH Magazine founding editor and the author of It All Changed in an Instant: Six Word Memoirs by Writers Famous and Obscure, Larry Smith comes to Greenlight to present his new book, The Moment: Wild, Poignant, Life-Changing Stories from 125 Writers and Artists Famous & Obscure, a collection of personal stories from writers both famous and obscure revealing how a single instant changed their lives forever. An innocuous decision, an unforeseen accident, a chance conversation, a tag sale, a terrorist strike, a tweet . . . sometimes all it takes is a moment to redirect the course of an entire life. Joining Larry Smith are some of the contributors to the collection: Julie Metz, author of Perfection: A Memoir of Betrayal and Renewal; Colin Nissan, author of Don’t Be That Guy; Said Sayrafiezadeh, author of When Skateboards Will Be Free; Piper Kerman, author of Orange is the New Black: My Year Inside a Women's Prison; Gillian Laub, author of Testimony; and Josh Axelrod author of Repeat Until Rich who will each present from this terrific collection. Wine will be served after the event.
