August Wilson Crossword Puzzle Now AvailableIn honor of the Signature Theatre's new production of esteemed two-time Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright August Wilson's HOW I LEARNED WHAT I LEARNED, a crossword puzzle celebrating the man and his plays is now available to peruse.

Originally first released a few years back in commemoration of the August Wilson celebration at Signature Theatre - highlighted by the premiere of this very play, as a matter of fact - the crossword provides ample opportunities to test your Wilson wisdom and perhaps learn a few new things, too.
