The Battle event is almost here!

Join us for our 5th Annual Battle of the Books competition, Saturday, August 2nd, 1:00 pm at the Headquarters Library, Meeting Room A!

Cheer for your library’s Battle of the Books team and meet special guest Marissa Meyer, author of Cinder, one of the three selected books for this year’s event!  Meyer is New York Times bestseller author of the Lunar Chronicles series, Cinder, Scarlet and Cress.  She will speak at 1 pm, just prior to the Battle, which begins at 1:30 pm.  She will also be present following the Battle to sign books, which will be available for purchase.

Battle of the Books is a competition between library branches. Teens at each branch have been attending regular meetings throughout the summer and have read the 3 selected books that will be used in the challenge. The final match will be competing against teens from other branches to see who has the best knowledge of the books.

 The other two titles of the selected books for this year’s event are Between Shades of Gray by Ruta Sepetys and Dodger by Terry Pratchett.
