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.

The fifth annual Boston Book Festival will take place Oct. 17 -19, 2013 in various Copley Square locations. Festival events will include presentations and panels featuring internationally-known writers, scholars, critics, and commentators; programming for children, teens, and families; writing workshops and competitions; outdoor booths; and poetry and music performances.  Most events are FREE and open to the public. The featured authors, to be announced in the coming months, will represent a wide array of programming, and include award winners, best-selling authors, renowned scholars, children’s writers, and writers of fiction, nonfiction, and poetry. The Boston Book Festival is produced by the nonprofit organization of the same name, and is made possible with the generous support of individual donors and sponsors, including Presenting Partner 90.9 WBUR, Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, Other Press, Chitika, Plymouth Rock Assurance, Hachette Book Group, and the Folio Society.
