This week in the Triangle, show off your knowledge and fandom at a trivia program at the Southeast Regional Library in Garner, catch a free movie at the Halle Cultural Arts Center in Apex, watch lots of cute and talented dogs strut their stuff at the Tarheel Cluster Dog Show at the North Carolina State Fairgrounds in Raleigh and travel back in time to learn about women’s history at West Point on the Eno in Durham.
Teens in grades 6-10 can engage in a battle of the fandoms at an activity at the Southeast Regional Library in Garner. Come represent your favorite series — Harry Potter or Percy Jackson and the Olympians — in a trivia contest based on the books. Preregistration is requested. The battle runs from 6:30-7:30 p.m.
