Battle of the Books

Wednesday, September 24, 2014 - 7:15pm to 8:15pm
Due to demand, we've added this second date! Calling all book lovers in grades 4-6, join us for a trivia competition! Participants will read 2015 Bluestem and Caudill nominees and come together in teams to test their knowledge of what they've read. Teams will practice once a month in preparation for our "battle" in March. Points, prizes and bragging rights will be awarded! At the first meeting we'll choose books and discuss teams. Register in person or by phone beginning August 1; please call 847-245-5116.
