June Madness!

Welcome to June Madness at the Roesch Library. Throughout the month of June, we are pitting book against book, favorite against favorite until a final winner is crowned. Stay true to your shelf and place your votes for the first round in each of the four regions. Then, check back next week to see which titles triumph and which are sent to the drop box. New to June Madness? Just follow these three steps!

  1. Read this Blog Post to learn more
  2. Submit your predictions here
  3. Cast your votes below. For the first round, each region has eight pairings. Feel free to vote in any or all of them--even if you haven't read the books!

As Week Five voting ends, the final chapter begins! In the Western Conference, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone handily triumphed over the other Science Fiction & Fantasy contenders. In the Eastern Conference, Lois Lowry's The Giver quietly and confidently asserted itself as our favorite modern Classic.

Both of these beloved books have enchanted many a reader over the years, but which will you pick to be the champion of June Madness? See the full bracket here, learn more about both books below, and cast your vote!
