(Please pardon the cross-posting)
You have titles to recommend for the 2018-2019 Oregon Battle of the Books, right? Please see below for the recommendation link.

In my experience on the elementary committee we can use more recommendations for the following:
1. Books written by people of color or Native Americans about people of color or Native Americans.
2. Nonfiction (and here's the clincher) that a question writer could get 80 questions out of without it being horribly obvious which book it is.

These are the gaps I've seen from working on the committee, but you are welcome to recommend any great books you want. 

Thanks, Korie
