These are just a couple of questions that were asked during our Fandom Trivia Night last Friday!
 
Fangirls and Fanboys grouped into teams to prove that they were the most knowledgeable in all things fandoms. The fandoms included for our trivia night included SuperWhoLock, Hunger Games, Disney/Pixar, Marvel, Harry Potter, Twilight, Lord of the Rings, and Star Wars! Whew...that's a lot of fandoms.
 
Here's our night in pictures...

It was truly a nerdy, fandom-filled weekend because C2E2 was in town! That's how I got to go in the TARDIS! I am now traveling through time and space with the Doctor. Jealous?

Last week was Banned Books Week, where we celebrate our right to read and intellectual freedom. In the Hub on Tuesday, September 23rd, we played Dangerous Knowledge: Banned Books Trivia, where we ate pizza and learned tons of weird and hilarious/depressing trivia about books that have been banned or challenged.
 
Some examples of questions:
 
Q: What personal account of a girl's life from 1942 - 1944 was banned for "being too depressing"?
 
 
Q: What author of an often-banned fantasy series had trouble boarding a plane with the only manuscript of her upcoming book?
A: J.K. Rowling (the Harry Potter series)
 
The winning team members each won a gift card to Amazon (hopefully to buy a banned book.) Then everyone took some mugshots with their favorite banned books. Check 'em out:
