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.

She lives in Park Slope with 5 roommates where she is at work on a novel/memoir titled Progress Reports.
