Literary Madness Hits JMS!

To coincide with March Madness, the JMS library is sponsoring a Literary Madness Battle of the Books contest via the morning advisory classes. The madness began with the selection of the "Sweet 16". The selection committee looked very closely at the circulation records of each book in the school collection and seeded their choices accordingly. After previewing trailers on head to head match ups, students have had their chance to advance their favorite option through the bracket with a raise of the hand. The first round of action saw several surprises, a few upsets, and some lopsided victories. We are now on to the Elite 8 with the JMS Champion to be crowned soon!
