Welcome to Battle of the Books Club

    So what is the Battle of the Books?  Books that cover a number of genres are selected by reading specialists at each of the high schools. Different genres include fiction, nonfiction, humor, mysteries, science fiction and fantasy.  Students on the Battle of the Books team from each participating school read as many of the books as possible (8 titles this year).  Club meetings are very important so that battlers can discuss the books and retain as much information about them so that when the battle rolls around, everyone is prepared. The semi final and final battles take place in April each year, with a team of students from each high school answering “Jeopardy style” questions about the books. The winning team will receive the coveted Golden Book trophy.
