Battle of the Books

2017 Judge: Brendan Kiely

Brendan Kiely is The New York Times bestselling author of All American Boys (with Jason Reynolds), The Last True Love Story, and The Gospel of Winter. Someone once told him that if he became a writer he could read for a living. He can’t. He has deadlines. They loom. He loves to write, but reading for the Battle of the Books brings him back to the original dream. He is grateful.

  1. Should’ve become a librarian! :) (Though most of the reading is done outside work hours, I’ll admit.)
