WORD / PLAY
The Booksmith
San Francisco, CA

$15 for pizza, open bar, and 2 rowdy, interactive, inappropriate hours of putting your BA in English to good use.

May's panelists are raring to go: they just need you to help decide who gets May flowers, and who get April showers.

TEAM 1:

Esther Inglis-Arkell: Esther is a contributing editor at io9.com, writing science pieces and occasional rants about how movies should be more to her taste. She absolutely kicked ass at her last W/P appearance.

Colin Winnette: Author of Animal Collection, and the forthcoming novella Fondly, Colin spends his free time bookslinging for The Booksmith. Our favorite thing to do is to watch him handsell his own book to people without telling them he's the author. He has a tumblr with lots of cat pictures on it.

Jenni Holm: In addition to being a New York Times bestselling author and recipient of three Newberry Honors for Babymouse, Jenni Holm often wears slippers to work and describes pink as "lightish red". Like her character, Babymouse, she spells everything correctly.


TEAM A:

Pireeni Sundaralingam: Pireeni is a professor, a poet, a playwright, and a scientist. She's also partially responsible for the existence of Word/Play, and we think that's her biggest accomplishment.

Isaac Fitzgerald: Isaac is Managing Editor of The Rumpus, and the creator of Pen & Ink. He's been a firefighter, worked on a boat, and been given a sword by a king, thereby accomplishing three out of five of his childhood goals.

Phil Cousineau: Phil hails from the Paris of the Midwest (Detroit), and he's most recently the author of The Painted Word: A Treasure Chest of Remarkable Words and Their Origins. He used to play semi-pro basketball in Europe, and we're curious to see how he uses this to his advantage.
