"The Granddaddy of Highbrow Bracketology"

If it’s March, it’s bracket time. If you’re not playing along with the NCAA brackets (go Kentucky!) then have no fear. There are brackets available for every stripe. Here at the library, we've been following The Morning News’s Tournament of Books. Now entering its 11th season, the Tournament of Books pits 16 of the past year’s most talked about and best literary fiction against each other in head-to-head battles, sweet sixteen style. Or as they describe it, "The Granddaddy of Highbrow Bracketology."
Will the literary juggernaut All the Light We Cannot See sweep the series? Which of your favorites will be upset in the first rounds? For me that was the Department of Speculation.
A Rooster?
Only for the Winner.

Kids' books more your style? Follow the School Library Journal’s Battle of the Books and read March Madness: Kids’ Book Style by one of our children’s librarians who loves the event. Superheroes? Have no fear. Fan of romance? Have that, too. Cookbooks? Bingo.

So grab a book, place your bets and follow along in the conversation.
