March Book Madness 2018

March 12, 2018 | Geisel Library

After a successful debut last year, March Book Madness returns to Geisel Library this spring! Paralleling the NCAA’s March Madness, instead of college basketball teams we’ll be pitting well-known books against each other, and it will be up to the Saint Anselm community to determine the winner. Last year, from a set of 64 books with animals in their titles, The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe closely beat out Where the Wild Things Are 42-38 in the championship match. This year’s theme—travel and adventure! Make sure to submit your bracket on time, because we’ll be giving out three gift card prizes for the top brackets!
