Boston Book Festival Presents Revenge of Literary Team Trivia

(BOSTON – June 3, 2013) The Boston Book Festival presents a special fundraising event. “The Revenge of Literary Team Trivia” will feature host WBUR’s Meghna Chakrabarti as trivia jockey. She’ll be handing out prizes (donated by WBUR, BBF, and our partners) for the teams with the top three scores–and a special prize for the best team name! Those who don’t have a team are encouraged to join the “Dickensian Orphans.”

Tickets Price:   $12 in advance and if available, $15 at the door.

Proceeds benefit The Boston Book Festival.
