2023 Battle of the Books Winners

BattleoftheBooks 1


Congratulations to this year’s Battle of the Books winners! This was an entirely virtual event and hosted teams from GPAEA’ region. Students participated in tests about the booklist and heard a presentation from author, Rosanne Parry. Rosanne lives in Oregon and writes in her treehouse in her backyard. Her latest book A Horse Name Sky is set to release in September. 

Thank you to all of the schools who participated in the Battle of the Books – see you next year!
