Literary Trivia!

Do you happen to know in which London borough Zadie Smith was born? Or on which continent Nathan Englander set his first novel?

If you know the answer to both of these questions, then write to me at this e-mail address. The first person to get both questions right will win two tickets to hear Zadie Smith and Nathan Englander speak at a benefit event for Matawi, a nonprofit organization devoted to helping young Somali and Kenyan refugee women attend college. The event will be on December 2 at 8:00 P.M. at the SVA Theater in Chelsea, with a reception to follow. Seats normally sell for $100; VIP tickets are $250 (and are still available online).

So come on, you literary buffs—show me what you’ve got!
