Persistence Pays Off for West University's Tournament of Books Team

Competitive fire is not something one usually associates with the generally solitary pursuit of reading, but that is exactly what motivated the four young men who made up West University Branch Library's 2019 Tournament of Books team. After a showing in last year's Tournament that did not meet their own high expectations, the team members re-dedicated themselves and hit the books...hard. Their persistence and drive paid off with a victory of four equally worthy teams from Spring Branch, Galena Park, North Channel and Kingwood.
