Ken Jennings—Because I Said So!

Colfax Avenue: In 2004, Ken Jennings successfully auditioned for a spot on Jeopardy!, and went on an unprecedented seventy-four game victory streak worth $2.52 million. Jennings’s book Brainiac, about his Jeopardy! adventures, was a critically acclaimed New York Times bestseller, as was his follow-up, Maphead. Jennings will discuss and sign his entertaining new book Because I Said So!: The Truth Behind the Myths, Tales, and Warnings Every Generation Passes Down to Its Kids (Scribner).

“A fun, lighthearted compendium of conventional wisdom, mostly parental, which debunks plenty of old wives’ tales and urban myths while offering a few surprising truths.… ‘Occasionally Mom knew what she was talking about,’ as this clever book confirms, but often she did not.” —Kirkus Reviews
