BRACKETS SET FOR VBDL’S MARCH BOOK MADNESS 
   DECATUR -
Wicked. Beloved. Atonement. Centennial. What may sound like adjectives describing a century-spanning epic romance novel are actually some of the contenders in Van Buren District Library’s 2020 March Book Madness.
   Beginning Saturday, Feb. 22, VBDL is pitting 32 current novels against 32 classics in round one of the six-week competition. Competitors in the Currents Division must have been published no earlier than 1986. Classic titles are those published in 1985 and before. In Round One, Fight Club takes on The Three Musketeers; Memoirs of a Geisha goes up against Shogun; Sing, Unburied Sing competes against Beloved, while Fifty Shades of Grey faces off against The Scarlet Letter.
   Winners of Round One, which ends February 28, go on to Round Two. The Championship Round is March 28 to April 3. The winner, chosen by popular vote, will be announced during National Library Week in April. The 2020 Champion joins the 2019 winner, Charlotte’s Web, in the VBDL March Madness Hall of Fame.
   Voting may be done online at https://s.surveyplan-et.com/90EhEGK8, beginning February 22, or at any VBDL location. For more information, phone (269) 423-4771 or e-mail info@vbdl.org.
