Nerd Jeopardy Returns July 21st

Like a rising phoenix with questionable IP usage, Nerd Jeopardy is back for round three. It’s just like every other literary trivia night you’ve attended, except this one comes with free wine (courtesy of Möet Hennessy) and a time-tested structure (courtesy of Alex Trebek).

Unlike the game show, all of our questions are about books, publishing, and pop culture. Three teams of three compete (the prizes are middling; the glory, everlasting) in two rounds, with some audience participation thrown in for good measure. There will be surprise appearances from some notable novelists in the form of the immortal Video Daily Double.

As an added bonus the whole ordeal’s going down at one of my favorite bookstores: McNally Jackson.

NB: The event’s presented by my little newsletter for FSG, Work in Progress. (If you haven’t subscribed yet, you should. There’s a nice little bonus package for subscribers in the July 15th issue.)

    How can we sign up a team to compete

      Grab two friends and pick a team name. As the event begins competing teams can drop their name in a hat; I’ll pick three and we’ll go from there. If your team isn’t chosen this time, you can still compete for the audience prizes. Win win.
