Since 2009, The How I Learned Series has featured writers, storytellers, comedians, and other raconteurs holding forth on lessons learned, unlearned, relearned or in progress. The How I Learned Series happens once a month, and sometimes more than that, which basically means you will have the best night of your life on those nights, repeatedly.



HOW I LEARNED TO FIGHT LONELINESS

THIS is the night that will change all of our lives and nights and days forever. By the way, I got the idea for this topic from the Wilco song How to Fight Loneliness and NOT BECAUSE I KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT IT OR ANYTHING.

Okay! See you there!
