Battle of the Books 2019 Informational Meeting

When: Sat., March 23, 2:30-3:30 p.m. 2019
Learn about the library contest sweeping the nation that allows students Grade 7 and up to compete against other public libraries in a Jeopardy-style match. A moderator asks 17 questions per round concerning eight pre-selected books. This year’s chosen books are: The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams, The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas, I Am Number Four by Pittacus Lore, Illegal by Eoin Colfer & Andrew Donkin, Simon vs. Homo Sapiens by Becky Albertalli, Beyond the Bright Sea by Lauren Wolk, The Girl in the Blue Coat by Monica Hesse, and The 57 Bus by Dashka Slater. Each team member has the opportunity to press a buzzer, confer with team members and attempt to answer questions correctly. Community Service hours for team members. Monthly team meet-ups will take place at the library April through June and weekly over the summer.
