Phinney Books, 7405 Greenwood Ave. N., is hosting former Jeopardy! champion Ken Jennings and longtime “The Simpsons” writer George Meyer, both of whom live in or near Seattle, at 7:30 p.m. Thursday. Jennings has written several books, including the new “Junior Genius Guides.”

Phinney Books owner Tom Nissley (himself a former Jeopardy! champion) says it’s not a traditional author reading, since Jennings won’t be reading from his books and Meyer hasn’t written any, but he promises laughs from “fresh material.”
