Trivia Night

Sponsored by Young Patrons

Calling all history buffs, culture gurus, museum aficionados, and encyclopædists! Join us for the Boston Athenæum’s first ever Young Patrons Sponsored Trivia Night. Come with your own team of up to 6 people or join up with others at the Athenæum to test your knowledge in this pub-style game. The top 3 teams will take home a special prize!

Your quizmaster for the evening, Fritz Holznagel, became an Athenæum member in 1999—just 4 years after winning the Jeopardy! Tournament of Champions. He also represented the U.S. at the first Jeopardy! Olympic Tournament in 1996 and appeared on the show’s Ultimate Tournament of Champions (2005) and Battle of the Decades (2014). In real life, he’s the creator of the biographical encyclopedia and a freelance writer who once wrote questions about Kansas, Missouri, and South Dakota for Where in the U.S.A. is Carmen Sandiego? A proud Oregon native, Fritz graduated with a degree in history from Willamette University in 1983.

Pizza, wine, and beer will be served.

Do you know why the columns in Upper Pilgrim are out of proportion for the room? Do you who sculpted Little Nell on the second floor? Can you name three important collections of rare books held at the Boston Athenæum? Sign up for a docent-led Art & Architecture Tour to learn the answers and wow your friends with your BA knowledge!
