Battle of the Books
Battle of the Books Club Webpage
Battle of the Books is open to all students who enjoy reading and LOVE competition. An interest meeting is held in early September of every school year. (See above date.) After that meeting, students submit an application to join. While students' book preferences are highly considered, our goal is that every book is read by 3-4 team members. Each student should allocate time to read AT LEAST six assigned books before the mid-December first book knowledge quiz. Typically one or two books assigned are not high on the student's preference list, but need to be read due to the nature of the competition. Contact Mrs. Walters, faculty advisor, with questions.
