Since 2009, How I Learned has featured some of the best live storytelling, comedy, and readings in New York City. It all happens a couple of times a year, and sometimes more than that, which basically means you'll have the best night of you life on those nights, repeatedly.

IT'S BEEN A MINUTE...

One Night Only! We're not playing around. 
(Also, here's the event on Facebook because that's how you know it's even real.)
Cannot wait to see you.

How I Learned is on hiatus for a bit. Nobody panic.

Stay tuned for news... I'm on Twitter, @blaiseallysen and @HILSeries, and @howilearnedseries on Instagram. There's also all that Facebook group and page stuff (I know, overkill), and there's always the podcast, which is pretty great and it may or may not even boast new episodes soonish. Who can say?

The point is: I love you, and I can't wait to see your face again, and thank you for coming out to all the freaking shows.

Love + Gratitude,
Blaise
