Tonight's the night for readers to show off their knowledge about books -- and have some fun doing it -- at the first Baltimore Blog Trivia night.

Read Street has provided some bookish questions for the event, which starts at 7:30 p.m. at No Idea Tavern, 1649 S. Hanover St. in Baltimore. You'll get a chance to compete with local bloggers, their readers and Baltimore Sun staffers. You can bring your own team, or join one. The event is free and open to the public.

I guarantee you, if Poe were alive, he'd be there, tossing back a few drinks while firing off answers.

Some questions will be based on content from Baltimore area blogs featured in The Sun's #MDreads Community Network. Clues will come from stories published in the hand-picked posts section at http://baltimoresun.com/localblogs from Aug. 29 to Sept. 12.


And, of course, there will be prizes for the top teams, provided by No Idea and The Baltimore Sun.
