Kirkus To Debut Book Trivia Game At SXSW

Are you a book trivia buff? Well Kirkus Media has a new app for you. The book review publisher has teamed up with social trivia app developer Qrank to build an iPhone/iPad/Facebook app for all things literature.

The app launches on Friday at SXSW at Pubcamp and will be up on the Kirkus home page later this month. “The Kirkus Book Challenge Powered by Qrank” will focus specifically on the history of publishing from Gutenberg to eBooks and will be broadcast live at PubCampsxsw.com.

Players from Pubcamp will compete against each other for the chance to win books that received a Kirkus Star in April, and they get to choose the format the book comes in. Four runners-up will win “Live Sketches” created on-site by artists from Toolbox.
