I have been enlisted to serve as quiz show participant for something called the “Don’t Know Much About Literature Quiz Show” at the Housing Works on September 17, 2009, at 7:00 PM. I am not sure what this evening entails exactly, but it looks to be very fun and apparently Kenneth C. Davis is involved. Davis is the guy who has authored such books as Don’t Know Much About History, Don’t Know Much About Quantum Physics, Don’t Know Much About Euclidean Geometry, Don’t Know Much About Tax Code, Don’t Know Much About Building the Great Pyramid of Giza, Don’t Know Much About the Theory of Everything, Don’t Know Much About the Fountain of Youth, and Don’t Know Much About Dan Brown’s Next Book.
Aside from me, there are a number of very fun people involved with this, including Jason Boog, Garth Risk Hallberg, Buzz Poole, Catherine Lacey, and Drew Toal. Beer is involved. Do stop on by and check it out!
