Firstly, this will be a condensed and very quick version of “Jeopardy!”, with only one round before Final Jeopardy. Second, we expect a slightly more tipsy crowd than usual, so heckling will be encouraged. Third, it will be in a bar.
If you haven’t been to our literary trivia night, the format is pretty simple. Imagine regular “Jeopardy!”, but excise the questions about psychics and European history. Add a few categories about books and pop culture, and let teams of three compete over glory, respect, and assorted prizes.
Update: contestants will be up against a formidable team of FSG authors: Will Hermes, Paul LaFarge, and Alina Simone. Combined they’re like Ken Jennings, if Ken Jennings graduated from an MFA program and went to rock shows.
