Spelling Bee For Grownups

Are you a stellar speller?

The San Diego Press Club is partnering with the San Diego Public Library for an exciting "word nerd" event: a Spelling Bee for Grownups!

Peter Sokolowski, editor at large with Merriam-Webster, will be moderating the event (and bringing the words). Grant Barrett of the radio show A Way with Words will be one of the judges.

Cost to participate as a speller is $10 per person (teams are welcome). It is free for audience members. This event is open to the public. Spellers are encouraged to register in advance to ensure their spot on the stage (and score a free drink ticket).

Parking is free for two hours with validation in the downtown library's underground garage.

Register here or call (619) 236-5802.

Dates and times of events are subject to change without notice. Always check the event organizer's website for the most updated schedule before attending. Check local COVID-19 restrictions and updates.
