About the Contest

HCC March Madness

HCC March Madness is an annual event (now in its 9th year!) that features 64 beloved books – one of which readers will crown as this year’s champion. Starting on March 3rd, readers will vote in match-ups to determine which books will advance to the next round. There are 6 rounds in total, and at the end one book will be announced the champion and the one book we should all read in 2016. The best part? It’s all determined by YOUR votes!

Looking for ways to support your favourite book? You can post on social media using the hashtag #HCCMarchMadness. It’s all in good fun, so feel free to champion as many books as you’d like.

The best part about the event? One of YOU will take home a library of all 64 HCC March Madness books! Once you've voted on each match-up you'll be asked to submit a contest entry. You can vote every hour, but you can only enter the contest once a day. If you have any questions please email us. Sorry, our contest is only open to Canadians, but anyone can vote.
