The 9th Annual Literary Reaping (ages 12-18)

18 June 2021 @ 19 h 00 min - 21 h 00 min

For ages 12-18



Show off your fabulous memory of all things related to teen literature by competing in an evening of challenges to the death (or until we select a winner). For this event, you’ll be placed in teams to answer trivia questions, and complete challenges based on young adult literature—classic and contemporary. In the past, participants were asked to shoot an arrow as straight as Katniss, prove a knowledge of the gods that rivals Percy and Magnus, demonstrate a knowledge of the small science to rival a Heartrender, and decide on the perfect spell faster than a magical maji. Wands, arrows, and other reaping accessories will be provided. All participating teens will win a brand new book to take home and keep.

This event will take place at the Library in small groups. Face masks are required for all participants.
Sign up-early: spaces are limited!
May the odds be ever in your favor…


Advance registration is required for this event. Participation in teen events is free for Library members. If you are not yet a Library member, but would like to participate, please join the Library. A signed permission slip is required to attend this event.
