Oakland ‘Jeopardy!’ champ Amy Schneider to host the Bay Area Book Festival’s first trivia night Tuesday

She was a contestant on the ultimate trivia show, winning an impressive 40 consecutive times. She’s now giving something new a try: hosting a trivia event herself. On Tuesday, “Jeopardy!” game show champ Amy Schneider is the slated emcee for the Bay Area Book Festival’s inaugural Literary Pub Trivia night at Albany bar The Ivy Room, and she’s excited to be taking on that role. “As a lifelong fan of books and of trivia, it’s a good fit,” remarks Schneider, who hails from Oakland.
