Scrabblemania hits Providence

The Renaissance City's claim as a Scrabble hotbed is well-lettered, thanks to Rich Lupo, whose maven status is delineated in Word Freak: Heartbreak, Triumph, Genius and Obsession in the World of Competitive Scrabble Players, by the WSJ's Stefan Fatsis, a long-ago colleague of N4N.

Now, BeloBlog has this:

The National School Scrabble Championship kicks off today at the Rhode Island Convention Center from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and continues tomorrow from 8:45 a.m. to 2:45 p.m.

The championship will be filmed for broadcast later this year on ESPN.
