Saturday:) Six Words Book Signing

24 Sep

“Much wisdom often goes with the fewest words.”

~Sophocles

This afternoon, my dear friend, Lynne Weinberger, had her book signing at Barnes and Nobles in Plano.

From the New York Times Best Selling Six-Word Menories Series, “Fresh Off the Boat” is the ninth in the series, from author/editor, Larry Smith. Inspired by Hemingway, he found that by asking people to describe their life in only six words, the most poignant stories could be told. This book is a compilation of insightful stories of immigration, identity, and coming to America. These stories are told by writers, famous and obscure, a tale expressed in only six words. 



Friends and family gathered to hear Lynne’s moving story of immigration by her father, a young man fleeing Eastern Europe, coming to America to start a new life. 

Although the book expresses her father’s life in only six words, her stories were fascinating descriptions of hardships, challenges, and triumphs. A man who cherished the priveledge of becoming an American citizen and serving his country, serving heroically in ways that few would ever know. 



We are all proud of our dear friend, Lynne Marsak Weinberger, and honored to know her. 

My six words for today… ” WE ALL LOVE YOU, DEAR FRIEND.”
