Animal Trivia, Tobias Buckell, and Book Nominations this Weekend at Bookstacks

05 Sep


Noon – Book Trivia: Animals
“Dogs come when they are called; cats take a message and get back to you.”  So says one of the authors in this week’s quiz on Animals.  Find out who said it, and you are on your way to winning the 500L prize in the Trivia Quiz on Saturday at noon.  Fastest fingers with the first correct answer get the points for each question, and the one with the most points at the end wins the prize.  If in doubt google or guess.
Bring out your inner animal and 500L for best themed costume could be yours too.
