Literary Death Match 100 Tour

To celebrate the 100th episode of the Literary Death Match, we're going on tour! We'll be visiting several cities throughout the month of October in order to spread the lit love in every corner of literacy, and to give everyone a chance to join in the excitement, no matter where you are.

For tour dates, check out literarydeathmatch.com, or just look to the list below.  

The LDM 100 tour is also a worldwide fundraising event for Opium for the Arts, a 501(c)3 Nonprofit, so thanks for your help and support! We couldn't do this stuff without you.
