Battle of the Books participants read off this year's list of books full of books in different genres. They do NOT have to read all of the books to participate, but the more books read, the greater chance they can help their team answer competition questions correctly!
How are Battle of the Books books selected?
The books were selected by a committee made up of Books for a Better World members and representatives from our partnerships: EVSC and Evansville Public Libraries. Looking at a large list of submitted suggestions, we narrowed down the books based off of availability in libraries and selected books using a set of criteria. The criteria were: reading level, interest, gender focus, cultural/ethnic emphasis, and format of the book.
Submit suggestions for next year’s book list by the deadline!
