Battle of the Books in Port Moody
Spectators are welcome at the fifth annual Battle of the Books later this month in Port Moody.
Everyone is invited to cheer as School District 43 middle school students compete to see who knows the most about their books. The exciting final competition is set for Wednesday, March 28 at 3:30 p.m. in the Inlet Theatre, at PoMo city hall. No registration is required to drop in as a spectator.
During the competition, 12 teams will face off in a tournament-style book trivia contest. Trivia questions are based on six top-notch books chosen by local teacher librarians. This year’s titles are: Fish by L.S. Matthews; The Alchemyst by Michael Scott; Out of my Mind by Sharon Draper; Wolf Brother by Michelle Paver; The House of the Scorpion by Nancy Farmer; and Zen and the Art of Faking It by Jordan Sonnenblick.
Competing middle schools include Sir Frederick Banting, Citadel, Como Lake, Hillcrest, Maillard, Kwayhquitlum, Maple Creek, Minnekhada, Montgomery, Moody, Scott Creek and Summit.
