Banned Books Week Trivia Night

October 5, 2023 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm EDT

Free

Test your literary knowledge against other players and celebrate Banned Books Week with a night of trivia at Quincy Hall!

Our expert trivia host, Jessica Sprigings, will present a trivia challenge for anyone who would like to participate and award prizes for the winners! Come early for Quincy Hall’s 3-day fermented pizza dough or stay late for a drink from their large eclectic selection.

Banned Books Week was launched in 1982 in response to a sudden surge in the number of challenges to books in schools, bookstores and libraries. It’s an annual event celebrating the freedom to read and the value of open access to information. 

Location: Quincy Hall Pints & Pizza, 4001 Fairfax Dr, Arlington, VA 22203. Visit www.quincyhallbar.com  for menu and pricing. Street parking is limited. Attendees may park at the library and walk to the venue.

Teams may consist of one to five people. Teams of one may be asked to work together to create larger teams.
