[News and Notes] 2013 Tournament of Books

Readers, don't feel left out if you're not a NCAA basketball fan. March Madness for readers is also taking place. The 2013 Tournament of Books began on March 7. 

Here's how it works: "16 of the previous year’s best works of fiction enter a March Madness-style battle royale.  At the end of the month, the winner of the Tournament is blessed with the Rooster, our prize named after David Sedaris’s brother (because why not)."  
-- From A Primer to the Tournament of Books

Today, Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn (Memphis Reads review) battles Beautiful Ruins by Jess Walter in a Quarterfinals match. 

Visit The Morning News Tournament of Books to download and view brackets and to view previous and upcoming rounds.

P.S. Don't forget to join the Harlem Shake event tomorrow, 4:30 p.m., at Central!
