On Saturday, May 9, 2020, at 10:00 a.m., the Robert H. Jackson Center will host its first-ever Battle of the Books. Our battle invites any Chautauqua County students in the sixth through eighth grades to demonstrate their abilities and test their knowledge of a pre-selected list of books they have read in preparation for the battle. Student teams earn points by answering questions about the books on the list. At the end of six rounds of questioning, we total the points earned by each team and the team with the most points will win the battle!
