Tell us why you should be our 2021 Tournament of Books Reader Judge.
Will you be the one to make the deciding call in an epic battle of literary bloodsport? Every year we leave a seat open on our judging panel for a Tournament of Books fan. This year, it could be you.
Nominate yourself by completing the below form by Thursday, Dec. 17, 2020, at midnight Eastern Time. For this exercise (but not your actual ToB judgment) you’ve got 100 words. Here’s what we want to know:
Show us you’re a reader. As a judge, you’re faced with two books and a firm deadline. An appetite for reading is essential.
Show us you’re opinionated. We want judges with conviction, not kid gloves.
Show us you’re creative. The strength of your final judgment is in how you express it. (Extra points if you avoid basketball metaphors.)
Show us who you are. What is it about you—your background, your job, your current life—that will help bring a fresh voice to the ToB?
