Nerd Jeopardy is just like a certain famous game show, except there are no commercial breaks, no giant cash prizes, and all of the categories are about books. You can compete in a team of three against two other teams; the winners will earn the respect of your peers, which we know is impossible to get anywhere else. You can also hang back as an audience member, heckling with abandon. There are assorted prizes either way. You will leave the event vindicated for majoring in 19th-Century Russian Poetry. And because of the free drinks, you will also leave the event slightly tipsy. Hosted by Ryan Chapman and presented by Farrar, Straus and Giroux's Work in Progress. All are welcome.
