The How I Learned Series features writers, storytellers, comedians, and other raconteurs holding forth on a different theme. It all happens every last Wednesday of the month, and sometimes more than that, which basically means you will have the best night of your life on those nights, repeatedly.

Dear Friends, Fans and Supporters of How I Learned,

I'll be representing the How I Learned Reading Series in a comedy-heavy episode of Opium Magazine's wacky Literary Death Match on August 20th. Yow!

If you come and cheer real loud I'll feel like a gold medal winner no matter how hard I fucking bite it in the end. I'm doing it for How I Learned. And for you. Everything I do, I do it for you.

Info below. And, of course, don't forget August 26th's big night of embarrassment at How I Learned. Yay!
