Battle of the Books
The Manitowoc-Calumet Library System’s annual book trivia challenge for grades 7-12
So, what is Battle of the Books?
Well, it is way more than just reading books: it is a competition for some serious bragging rights. Battle of the Books is a system-wide trivia competition among library teams that has been held for 15-plus years.
Each library in the Manitowoc-Calumet System assembles teams of teens hungry for good books who test their knowledge for the chance to win the coveted Battle Trophy Plaque to hang in their library. The tournament always ends with a pizza party and a book-signing with an author — all for reading great books!
If you are interested in joining the team contact Teen Associate Lisa Pike at firstname.lastname@example.org starting in May for the upcoming summer.
Adri’s, Catherine’s, and Lenore’s lives are intertwined but not in the way that one would think. Adri lives in 2065 Kansas, Catherine lives in 1930s Kansas, and Lenore lives in England in 1919. As Adri is preparing to go to Mars, she stays with her cousin in Kansas, where the training takes place. Upon settling in, she comes across letters written from Lenore to Beth. Through journals and, later, letters, Catherine narrates her own story of being in Kansas during the Dust Bowl.
