We have our Book Madness winners!

by on April 11th, 2016

It was a heated competition, but Ray Bradbury’s Fahrenheit 451 defeated Suzanne Collin’s The Hunger Games to be named ICPL’s 2016 Book Madness champion in the Teens & Adults bracket.

The Children’s bracket winner was Wonder by R. J. Palacio. This wonderful (pun intended) book beat out Erin Hunter’s Warriors series.BookMadness

Nearly 100 patrons turned in completed brackets, but only four had the winning title in their bracket — one in the Teens & Adults bracket, and three in the Children’s bracket. We moved to a point system to determine our winner in the children’s bracket (one point for every correct title moving on to Round 2, two points for every correct title in the Sweet 16, three points for every correct title in the Elite 8, etc.). We will contact the winners this week.

Thank you to everyone who participated in this year’s Book Madness! Remember, you can find a list of all 2016 titles here. Please let us know if there’s a category and/or book title you’d like to see in next year’s competition!
