Twenty-four teams of students representing 16 branches of the Buffalo and Erie County Public Library will compete in a book trivia contest Saturday at Erie Community College South.
The 20th annual Battle of the Books is set for 11:15 a.m. Saturday in the college gym, 4041 Southwestern Blvd., Orchard Park.
The teams of sixth- through ninth-graders read the same five books and will compete in answering questions about them.
The Amherst Public Library won the championship last year, and the Grand Island Memorial Library was runner-up.
This year’s selected books are "Red Queen" by Victoria Aveyard, "Soar" by Joan Bauer, "It Ain’t So Awful, Falafel" by Firoozeh Dumas, "Click Here to Start" by Denis Markell and "Kid Owner" by Tim Green.
