Historical Fiction Rocks!

The Genre Challenge Has Returned at the Maud Marks Library for Summer 2018.  The way this works, you read books in different genres and then turn in slips to be entered in for drawing for various gift baskets.  If you read 5 different genres over the summer, you will receive an entry for the grand prize basket.  This basket includes a Kindle Fire, a $25 gift certificate to Katy Budget Books, and 4 tickets to the Alamo DraftHouse movie theatre.

It's-a me, Mario!, I'm-a Luigi, number one!
