Battle of the Books 2017-2018


Meetings will be held on Wednesdays, as listed below, from 3:30 to 4:10 pm.  Students should have completely read each book by the date for which the meeting is listed. Please note that our library may only have several copies of each book, so it may be necessary to purchase books elsewhere.

During the month of April, a team of 5 students (plus alternates) will be invited to weekly meetings, in order to prepare for the Diocesan-wide competition in May of 2018. That team will be comprised of those students who have consistently demonstrated insight and comprehension of the assigned books.  Below is a tentative schedule of the reading deadlines for the books on our list: (The schedule may be adjusted as necessary.)
