Jonathan Franzen on Jeopardy

By Dianna Dilworth 

Author Jonathan Franzen competed on celebrity Jeopardy earlier this week.

For the show’s “Power Players Week,” leading journalists and politicians competed to raise money for charity. The award-winning novelist competed against Chuck Todd from Meet the Press and conservative political writer S.E. Cupp.

Franzen missed a question about Shakespeare, but did show his skills as a bird enthusiast answering most of the questions in the “Birds” category. (Via Electric Literature).
