Come to Ephemera 25 and MeetAmerica's
Quickly! Name a city/state pair in which the letters forming the
word "tenor" appear in consecutive order.
Ephemera 25 guest speaker Will Shortz plucks gems like
this out of the air like feathers from an erne. As editor of The
New York Times crossword puzzles, and Puzzle Master for National
Public Radio, Shortz gets paid to stump his loyal listeners and
readers. Shortz will try to flummox those who attend Saturday night's
banquet as he debuts a unique ephemera-based challenge.
Shortz, a Society member who collects puzzle-related ephemera,
is also an author and popular speaker who can divide1,000-person
audiences down the middle and get them bouncing up and down like
jacks-in-the-box in spirited competition.
How did Shortz become an enigmatologist? Come to the banquet the
night of March 19th and ask him yourself.
