Mark Twain 2019-2020

If you are a student in fourth or fifth grade, you may choose to be a Mark Twain Book Award Reader. If you read four or more of the twelve nominated books for the Mark Twain Book Award and pass a short quiz by March 1st, you will be eligible to vote for the book you think deserves the award.

Voting will take place in the library at a Mark Twain Book Award Readers Celebration. All students who have read and passed quizzes on four or more books will be invited. We will have a breakfast, book discussions, and prizes.

I hope you choose to become a Mark Twain Book Award Reader!
