Battle of the Books 2022 Rocks On!

Denver Public Library is delighted to once again host Jim Mustich, author of 1000 Books to Read Before You Die, for an epic virtual Winter of Reading Battle of the Books, on Saturday, January 22, 6-7 p.m.

How does the Battle work? Five panelists have four minutes each to defend their choice of title to be added to the 1000 Books list. Last year’s winner, author and gourmand Adrian Miller, nailed it with The Taste of Country Cooking by Edna Lewis, with runner-up Dr. Renee Fajardo posting Bless Me, Ultima.

Our literary gladiators include returning champion author Dr. Elizabeth Renee Fajardo (MSU Denver), Dr. Carl Clark from the Mental Health Center of Denver, author David Heska Wanbli Weiden, reporter and anchor Chris Parente, and Representative Leslie Herod. Battle titles will be available for purchase from BookBar
