Book Madness: Tournament of Authors

BracketThe library’s first Tournament of Authors is on! Pick up a bracket at the library or print your own Bracket (on 8.5 x 14 paper) to get in on the action. See if you can guess who the library’s favorite author will be. At the end of each week, prizes will be given for those with the most correct guesses.

The rules are pretty simple:

1.) Pick up and fill out your bracket in pen. Brackets will be available Monday, February 23.

2.) Bring it in to the library to be initialed by a staff member before March 4, when Round 1 will be announced.

3.) Vote each round for your favorite authors! You can vote in the library (once per day), plus there will be additional ways to sneak in extra votes on Facebook!


Updated Schedule:

Fill out brackets: March 1-7 – Bring them back to the library to be initialed
