A popular children’s book author is coming to Traverse City in March. Fantasy writer Tui T. Sutherland will present the first prize to the winning team of the National Writers Series Battle of the Books competition.

Fourth and fifth grade Northern Michigan students have been busy studying ten pre-selected books this winter. On March 12, their knowledge will be tested in a quiz bowl showdown to determine which teams can remember the most facts from those books. Then on March 20, the finalists will take the Lars Hockstad Auditorium stage within Central Grade School, and be crowned champions by award-winning author Tui Sutherland.

Tui Sutherland will then be available after the book-based battle for a Q&A session with all attendees. Sutherland is the author of several New York Times bestseller books, including the Wings of Fire series, a ten-book epic dragon fantasy and Spirit Animal #5 Against the Tide.
