We’re bringing back everyone’s favorite literary trivia night to McNally Jackson.
Nerd Jeopardy ReturnsPresented by Work in Progress and Small DemonsTuesday, April 17th, 7pmMcNally Jackson, 52 Prince St.New York City 
What Is Nerd Jeopardy?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. All are welcome.
*If you’d like to compete, grab two friends, give yourselves a literary moniker, and drop your name in the hat at the start of the program. We’ll select three teams around 7:10pm. If yours isn’t chosen, don’t fret. You can still participate in the audience quiz at intermission and find solace in the free wine.

Nerds! Take note.
Oh hells yeah.
