The Kansas City Public Library is consistently doing cool things. Capitalizing on March Madness, the library is doing its own tournament ... but instead of basketball teams, the library is pitting classic books against each other.
The field of 64 doesn't have seeds, so it'll be up for interpretation on what's considered an upset. There can be only one. Can Friday Night Lights beat Seabiscuit? Can Twilight upend Dracula? Can Pride and Prejudice survive To Kill a Mockingbird? It's up to you to decide; voting begins today (Thursday) over at the library's website (click here to vote).
Now I know you're saying, Hey, what's in it for me? You'll be entered into a drawing to win a prize pack that includes a copy of each of the
final eight, er, elite eight books and a basketball autographed by KC author Whitney Terrell.
Winners will be announced April 3.
