Presentation & Booksigning with Ken Jennings: Maphead

Colfax Avenue: Ken Jennings grew up watching Jeopardy! every afternoon. He first appeared on the show in June 2004 and won. He continued to win every show through November 30 of that year. In total, Jennings won 74 games and $2.52 million, both U.S. game show records. The streak made him a TV folk hero, and Barbara Walters named him one of the ten most fascinating people of the year. Jennings’ book, Brainiac, about his game show adventures and the phenomenon of trivia in American culture, was a critically acclaimed New York Times bestseller. Jennings will be here at the Tattered Cover to discuss and sign the new paperback edition of his follow-up bestseller, Maphead: Charting the Wide, Weird World of Geography Wonks (Scribner).
