Here’s our 2017 Book Madness Elite Eight!

by on March 27th, 2017

Many NCAA March Madness brackets blew up this weekend — and the same could be said for our Book Madness brackets, too. We were surprised to see which titles didn’t advance to our Elite Eight (sorry, Drama). We have no idea what our Final Four will look like. Be sure to stop in before the Library closes on Sunday to vote for your favorite remaining books!
