The library's 2020 Summer Reading Finale for adults will take place on Thursday, Aug. 6 at 6:30 pm when Dr. David Javersak hosts a World Geography Bee featuring questions inspired, in part, by the Around the World People's University series. Watch live and participate on YouTube or Facebook.
No pre-registration required. Just join us online and participate by logging into your Facebook or YouTube account and having your keyboard ready to answer questions!
Round One will feature questions based on readings, language, and geography of the regions visited throughout our Summer Reading Program. The first person to type the correct answer in the comments on social media will earn one point. The top three scorers from Round One will move on to Round Two where they will play head to head in our virtual broadcast studio following a brief intermission.
At the end of Round Two, the Geography Bee Queen (or King) will be announced and top point winners will be awarded prizes in the form of gift certificates to local businesses. Now that's a honey of a deal, so start brushing up on your geography!
HOST: Dr. David Javersak grew up in Weirton, West Virginia, and was educated at West Liberty State College, the University of Hawaii and West Virginia University. He is dean emeritus of liberal arts and professor emeritus of history at West Liberty University.
