“I’ve been teaching for years at universities that, let’s face it, are very expensive. Access to a broad range of students has always weighed on me—it’s part of the reason I wrote my book, and it’s definitely why I’m so excited to teach these free sessions to up-and-coming high schoolers. See you there!”—Mike Errico
SESSION #1: Tuesday, July 12 to Saturday, July 16, 2022
SESSION #2: Tuesday, July 19 to Saturday, July 23, 2022
