Join us to celebrate the release of Nine Lives: A Life in 10 Minutes Anthology, edited by Sarah Allen-Short and Valley Haggard, published by Chop Suey Books Books. This event will take place at the Visual Arts Center of Richmond (1812 W. Main St.) and is free and open to the public. You can pre-order your copy here.
Nine Lives: A Life in 10 Minutes Anthology is a collection of 148 short, nonfiction pieces written ten minutes at a time by 121 authors, and collected by Life in 10 Minutes founder Valley Haggard and her co-editor, Sarah Allen-Short.
Nine Lives: A Life in 10 Minutes Anthology includes professional and beginning writers from all over the world. Each individual story is a stand-alone piece, but read them together and advance through the ages and stages of life, from birth to death, from our first breath to our last.
Ten minutes is enough time to write something strange and beautiful and true without editing the strangeness and beauty and truth out of it. Ten minutes is enough time to be born, get married, become a drunk, apologize in a grocery store, hate a vacation, watch the football team cry at lunch, fall in love with someone you shouldn’t, teach a Barbie yoga, find an unpaid internship in Syria, air your dirty laundry, die in a men’s halfway house in Mississippi, or change the course of your life forever.
