THE MADNESS HAS BEGUN.
...HCC March Madness, that is!

HCC March Madness is an annual event that features 64 beloved books – one of which readers will crown as this year’s champion. Starting on March 1st, readers will vote on 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. The best part? It’s all determined by YOUR votes!

Looking for ways to support your favourite book? You can tweet, post, or share 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.
