The event, a book-based quiz competition for fourth and fifth graders in the Grand Traverse area, kicked off with teams picking up their books and participating in book-realated activities. Forty-four teams are signed up so far for the event, which can accept up to 48. Teams read ten provided books, then compete in quiz-based battles leading up to the finals on March 19 at the City Opera House.
