March Madness for Books
Wednesday, March 9, 2011
The Morning News presents the 7th annual Tournament of Books—a tongue-in-cheek alternative to N.C.A.A.’s March Madness. Each spring, 16 of the most celebrated (not necessarily the best) novels of the previous year are seeded in a competitive bracket. Judges are enlisted throughout several rounds of competition, with each arbiter considering two books and advancing one, until the final round when one book becomes The Rooster, Champion Book of the Year. You can follow all the madness on The Morning News website or the Rooster’s blog (The Cage), and on the bracket displayed with our new fiction collection in the YDL lobby.
