The Bay Area Book Festival scored a very big hit with 40 times Danger! champion Amy Schneider is hosting a literary night at a literary pub on Tuesday, and there’s still time for you to sign up to compete.
If you occasionally spend your Tuesday night attending a trivial party at a Bay Area watering hole, you might want to rearrange your Tuesday schedule for this one. Just outside of El Cerrito in the town of Albany, KTVU reports that a small tavern on San Pablo Way was called the Ivy Room will be welcome Danger! champion Amy Schneider to host a Literary Pub Trivia night, hosted by the Bay Area Book Fair.
Since this is a Bay Area Book Festival event, the quiz topic will be literature and literary personalities. “What novelist wrote a manuscript entirely in pencil? Who typed all of Tolstoy’s books for him? If questions like these make your hand itch for a buzzer, you’ll love the Bay Area Book Festival’s first-ever Literary Pub Trivia night,” according to an announcement from the book fair. “Gather your teams of bookworms (six people max) and join us on Tuesday, August 9, from 7-10 p.m. at The Ivy Room at 860 San Pablo Avenue in Albany, for the chance to showcase all your literary knowledge acquired as they were designed. to share: with glasses!”
