Meeting Schedule January-February Meetings for all Battle of the Books students and team coaches will be held in the library on the following days from after school until 3:45PM on the following dates. Teams may choose to meet more often than this on their own if they would like- up to the team members and coach. March dates and final battle details announced soon.

  • January 13th
  • January 27th
  • February 10th
  • February 24th

Prepare for Battle All teams should have read every book on the list before the final battle in March (collectively, so at least one student has read each of the 12 books). Teams will need to answer all questions with title and author, so it is important they are familiar with the book list and associated authors. Students should become as familiar as they can with details from as many of the books as they can. Please see quizzes and resources linked below in order to get your player ready for the competition.
