Book Launch Ryan Chapman presents Conversation Sparks: Trivia Worth Talking About
Wine, writers' secrets, and the world's best small talk
Ryan Chapman’s day job is around the corner from Greenlight at BOMB Magazine; in his free time, he creates the Webby Award-nominated Tumblr “Fill the Silence,” hand-drawn cartoons illustrating brainy trivia tidbits that are great for starting conversations. His new book Conversation Sparks collects over 350 fascinating, little-known facts from the website, from the number of shipping containers lost at sea (about one per hour!) to now-retired Twinkie flavors (banana cream). Greenlight celebrates the launch of Ryan’s book with a unique event focused on literary conversation. Join us for drinks at 7:30, after which the bookstore transforms into a social puzzle with trivia, secrets, and prizes hidden among the stacks. We guarantee you'll leave 8% more interesting.
