To bring your autumn to new writerly and comedic heights, Literary Death Match returns to Largo at the Coronet for a brilliant evening of wit, lit and rambunctiousness that will fill you with a rare sensation of absolute glee. Preorder now before we sell out!

What is Literary Death Match? 4 authors read their own work for 6 minutes or less. They're judged by 3 all-star judges who respond (often comedically) to the work before choosing 2 finalists to compete in the LDM finale, a vaguely literary game (think Pin the Mustache on Hemingway) to decide the ultimate champion.

JUDGES:
Literary Merit: Jonathan Ames, creator of HBO's Bored to Death and author of Wake Up, Sir!
Performance: Fred Savage, director (Garfunkel & Oates; Party Down) and actor (The Wonder Years)
Intangibles: Kathyrn Hahn, actress from Afternoon Delight, Parks & Recreation, The Secret Life of Walter Mitty

READERS:
* Will McCormack, actor, producer and writer of Celeste & Jesse Forever
* Megan Amram, writer for Parks & Recreation, comedic Twitter genius, and author of Science...for Her!
* Graham Moore, screenwriter of The Imitation Game & New York Times Best Selling author (The Sherlockian)
* one more TBA!
