Once again, we’re the title sponsor of The Morning News Tournament of Books that tips off in March. We’re making our way through the books in this, the 13th edition of this literary cage-match, and hope you are too.
From TMN: “In case you’re new to all this, the ToB is an annual springtime event here at The Morning News, where a group of the best works of fiction from last year enter a March Madness-style battle royale. In March, these novels will be seeded and paired off in an NCAA Tournament-like bracket. For each pairing, one of our esteemed judges will read both novels and advance one, with a transparent explanation of how they made their decision.”
Buy one of these for $2 and we’ll take your $2 and match it with $2 of our own, and then donate $4 to 826 National, a seven-chapter network that provides under-resourced students, ages 6-18 with opportunities to explore their creativity and improve their writing skills.
In 2016 we raised almost seven thousand dollars for 826. Let’s see if we can do a lot better this year!
