Event description

Description

Prove you're the smartest person in the library. Win big-league bragging rights and tasty beverages.

Join the Calgary Public Library and Wordfest for the 8th Edition of Calgary's most Guilt-Free Trivia Competition, hosted by Richard Kemick. Trivia questions are loosely inspired by Russell Smith's award-winning short story collection, Confidence, as well as his recent (and always provocative) Globe and Mail columns. But familiarity with Smith's work is not required and will not necessarily increase your chances of winning.

Russell Smith’s visit is sponsored by The Arts and Sciences Honours Academy in the Faculty of Arts at the University of Calgary.
