Literary Death Match at The Battery

In the feat never before risked in LDM history, we're going back-to-back — two LDM's in two nights in one city! — starting with a humdinger at The Battery that will set your literary senses and funny bone aflame. If you're not a member, sign up or glom onto one, because this is a showcase of literary

and comedic brilliance you won't want to miss!

What is Literary Death Match?
