Battle of the Books
I am beyond thrilled to announce our FIRST ever Battle of the Books! Check back often as I hope to update the page with more details and answers to questions that arise.
WHAT IS THE BATTLE OF THE BOOKS?
The Battle of the Books is a trivia and game competition. All of the trivia questions and activities will be based on a select list of books.
WHAT BOOKS WILL BE USED?
For a list of the books view the Battle of the Books – Booklist post.
DO I HAVE TO READ ALL THOSE BOOKS?
Not necessarily. Reading all the books will give you an obvious advantage in the trivia portion of the competition. Reading may also help you out during some of the physical challenges (we’re still planning that part).
If you join with a team, you can always assign different books for team members to read so that at least one person will have read at least one of the books but that’s up to you.
WHO CAN PARTICIPATE?
Teens between the ages of 12 to 18 can participate. If you wish, you can even put together a team of 1 to 4 people. Not sure if you want to be a part of a team? Come alone on game day–you might find a group to join up with then. You are always welcome to play solo of course.
WHEN AND WHERE WILL THIS EXCITING EVENT BE HELD?
Thursday, August 22, 2013 at the Josey Ranch Lake Library (1700 Keller Springs Road) from4:00pm-6:30pm. The library is closed that day so we have the whole building as our domain!
