Larry Smith visited the Brookline Booksmith on Wednesday to talk about “The Best Advice in Six Words: Writers Famous and Obscure on Love, Sex, Money, Friendship, Family, Work, and Much More.” The latest installment of Smith’s “six-word” series features short bits of advice from celebs such as Molly Ringwald, Dave Eggers, and Jason Biggs, who played a version of Smith on “Orange Is the New Black.” (Smith is married to Piper Kerman, whose memoir inspired the Netflix show.)
