Two-person teams from several local literary organizations will compete for cash prizes while the audience members, and perhaps the contestants as well, get lit on craft beer and sausage croquettes.
Our extraordinary team will be Louis Greenstein, author of Mr. Boardwalk, and Ann de Forest, contributor to Hidden City Daily and many other fine magazines. Ann will bring along her grade-school spelling trophy if she can find it.
In these unpresidented times, spelling may seem a trivial art. Yet, in the words of Betsy DeVos, whom the White House officially dubbed the Secretary of Educatuon, we are passionate about increasing educatuon options for parents and stuedents, and what better way than to mix beer and orthography?
Our profound apologizes in advance for any mistakes made by our teem. But look, if you get into the spirit of the event, you won't even notice.
