Battle of the Books Team 2014

Our team members are [top row] Sandra Charalel, Ally Eisenberg, Priyanka Ramanathan, Karen Zollinger, Nicholas Procino and Mary Phillips (coach), [bottom row] Vicki Cheung, John Walters, and Grace Singleton.

It was a spirited competition, and at one point we lost by just one question out of twenty to the first place team. The Battle of the Books was held at the West Nyack Mall. Teens read 8 books: Bomb by Steve Sheinkin, Doll Bones by Holly Black, The Princess Bride by William Goldman, The Book Thief by Markus Zusak, Eleanor and Park by Rainbow Rowell, A Wizard of Earthsea by Ursual K. Leguin, Divergent by Veronica Roth, and Page by Paige by Laura Lee Gulledge.  Twelve libraries competed, and several libraries traveled hours coming from the Catskill region to West Nyack.  All participants went home with 5 books selected from our prize room and a "goodie bag" of candy and fun items.  A big hurrah for all the work and reading done by our team.
