The Thirty-Second Story


Inspired by “Jeopardy!,” this Book Bench article explores “the thirty-second story.”

The anxiety-inducing nature of composing a memoir in thirty seconds is explored through discussion with former contestants of the show and by imploring other Book Benchers to compose their own thirty-second stories. Try writing your own if you’re looking to add some anxiety to your day?
