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.

He is the author of two novels, Hornito and The Underminer. This August he released his first novella through Amazon's Kindle Singles called The Junket.

ANDY CHRISTIE's writing has appeared in the New York Times, in snooty literary journals and in the Thomas Beller anthology, Lost and Found: Stories from New York. He has been heard on NPR's Cityscape, and has been featured on The Moth Mainstage and Podcast. His humor book, I Wasn’t Kidding: How To Commit Suicide So They'll Never Forget It was published by Random House in the United States and the United Kingdom.

She gathered critical acclaim for her bi-weekly stage show, "Sara Schaefer is Obsessed With You," and has won a Webby Award and two Emmys as head blogger for Late Night With Jimmy Fallon. She is also the co-creator of the popular podcast "You Had To Be There" with comedian Nikki Glaser.

JOHN SELLERS has written for GQ, The New York Times, SPIN, TV Guide, Vulture, and an almost depressing number of other outlets. He is also the author of four books, including the recent snake-centric memoir The Old Man and The Swamp. He grew up in the suburbs of Grand Rapids, Michigan.
