“This is an amazing book, but I don’t have the chance to tell anybody…”
“I want to try doing a presentation in English!”
“I want to spread the word about books from my country”
If any of those sounds like you, then you should become a Biblio-battler!
A “Biblio-battle” is an exciting game where you introduce a book you really love or that you think people would love to read.
The rules are simple!
1. Battlers (People who introduce the books) choose books they read and found interesting.
2. They then take turns to introduce their books in 5 minutes one at a time.
(After each introduction there is a 3 minute discussion period)
3. Then the audience votes on which book they would most like to read. The winner is declared the Biblio-battle champion!
You don’t need to prepare anything big like a summary or a powerpoint.
You just need to persuade the audience that they should want to read your book using the power of your words!
After the event, there will be cafe time so you can talk about your favourite books with everyone else.
This is a great chance for people who want to share their love of books with others!
We’re waiting for your application.
