A Message from the For Books’ Sake Team

June 22, 2012

Today’s Guest Blogger is Jane Bradley, from the For Books’ Sake Team:

Hello, Hebden Bridge! Feeling clever? Been learning all about the Brontës and memorising endless amounts of Mitford sisters trivia? Know your Harry Potter from your Hunger Games and your Little Women from your Famous Five? Then take ten points and a merit mark, and go to the top of the class.

Wondering what on earth I’m on about? Then quiet in the back row and listen closely, and make sure you’re taking notes (don’t want to end up in detention, do you?). The For Books’ Sake Literary Pub Quiz, renowned in London, Leeds and Manchester, is coming to Hebden Bridge for the first time ever, and we can’t wait.

So to get you even more excited than we’re sure you already are, we thought we’d give you an exclusive sneak peek at some of our prizes, and give you a couple of clues to what subjects you might want to swot up on…

We’ve got goodies galore up for grabs, including a copy of Short Stack, our anthology of the best new pulp fiction written by women. Add to the pile a stack of the beautiful hardbacks in the Virago Modern Classics Designer Collection, assorted classics from the Penguin English Library collection, plus all sorts of other bookish bits and bobs, and it all adds up to a prize fund worth hundreds of pounds.

Fancy your chances? We’ll be quizzing you senseless at B@r Place from 7.30pm on Saturday 7th July, so get your team together (maximum of 4 people per team please) and be in to win it for only £2 per person.

And don’t forget to bring your pennies with you, because we’ll be bringing our brand new For Books’ Sake tote bags with us; an ideal way to proclaim your love of women writers in neon pink, and ensure you don’t get missed in the dark.

Still not feeling too smart? Have a crack at our online nostalgic YA fiction quiz to sharpen your faculties before the big day!
