Throw on your best tweed suit and biggest glasses—Nerd Jeopardy is back for a new year of testing your love of books. Just like the game show on television, Nerd Jeopardy requires all answers to come in the form of a question, and you and your team (three members per group) can go big by betting it all in Daily Double rounds and Final Jeopardy. Although you won’t walk away with fistfuls of cash, other prizes—of the kind that are valuable to nerds—will be awarded. The highly validating evening for English majors is presented by FSG’s Work in Progress, the website that gives a behind-the-scenes look on the publishing process. Ryan Chapman of FSG plays Alex Trebek.
