March Madness 2023 in the Library – Week 1

This year the Humanities and Social Sciences Library is celebrating March Madness with our very own book bracket. We’ve taken the top rated books from the Goodreads Choice Awards 2022 to put together the ultimate challenge on McGill’s favourite reads.

Week 1 begins March 6th and will be up from Monday – Sunday. Folks can vote for their favourite books by adding a tally next to their choice. Our preliminary bracket consists of sixteen contenders hoping to make it to our Elite Eight in Week 2.

Want to vote? Head to the McLennan-Redpath Library Building mainfloor near our Redpath Exhibition Case and Book Display to find the March Madness boards!
