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.

"The Getting of Wisdom is a more or less eternal narrative structure, hence this monthly reading series, at which writers and comedians hold forth on aspects of their respective bildungen. [The] theme is "How I Learned... To Lie, Cheat or Steal," and we are especially interested in the unsavory recollections of participant BEN GREENMAN, whom you may know as a novelist or humorist or New Yorker editor and pop critic, but whom we know as the rigorously scrupled Distinguished Spokesjudge of our Literary Upstart competition. Oh Ben, how could you, etc."

Oh, wait. It gets better... way better: Live and Learn...
