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.



I Am Not Here

Sunday, October 5, 2009

I am (somewhere near) here:


I'm up north this month for a writing residency at the Vermont Studio Center. It's pretty freaking heavenly and I may very well never want to come back except for the fact that it would mean I'd miss the next How I Learned on October 28th, which, by the way, is going to be awesome.

Meanwhile, here are photos from last month's show How I Learned to Live in New York. Look at how much fun we had. The amount of fun we will have this month is probably going to be the same if not greater. So come out.

PS. These photos are mostly without captions because I am very busy doing lots of things here in northern New England--writing, communing with artists, and just basically making autumnal magic to the max. Try not to miss the captions too much.
