How it Works

Library of Alexandria & Cuttlefish is a mini, interactive "Nerd Talk" about two mildly connected things: the Library of Alexandria and Cuttlefish. In this 60 minute, 100% virtual presentation, Lia "we definitely should have saved the scrolls" Tamborra will take your team through a wild explanation of ancient Egyptian record keeping, what it's like when the historic "hard drive" fails, the peculiar habits of cuttlefish and the tenuous links between it all. The presentation is smart, thought provoking, wildly entertaining, and one of the best damn ways to enjoy a virtual meeting.

Library of Alexandria & Cuttlefish is presented by Lia Tamborra, an NYC educator, performer, lyricist, writer and producer of the world class near-Broadway show, Hypathia. Of the 7+ billion people on our spinny little experiment, Lia is the one you want to tell you about what the greatest library ever built and marine molluscs have in common.

Nerd Talks™️ are's proprietary format for wildly smart, interactive and entertaining mini-presentations for teams. In each session, we explore the links between two barely related topics, in a way that feels good to you. It's like hanging out with your super smart, know-it-all, friend, but your friend has 10+ years of theatre training, actual facts and great comedic timing. We also include elements like icebreakers, trivia and call-outs for audience participation. It's fun.
