Battle of the Books Club! - 1st meeting!

Friday, November 1, 2013  
4:30 PM - 5:30 PM

CLP is holding a Battle of the BOOKS! What does that mean? It means you compete to see who knows most about books! Luckily they narrow it down to a 7-10 books and release the list early so you can be sure to read anything you haven't read yet.

We're starting teams of all age levels (Grades 6-12th). Talk to your friends and we can set you up as a group, or come to the meeting and we'll organize with who is there. We'll meet Friday, Nov. 1 to register our teams and get the list of books the first day it is released! From Nov-March, we'll read books and meet to share what we think is most important and what might get asked.
