The Rooster

Brackets for This Year’s Tournament of Books

Friends, the Rooster is right around the corner. This Monday, March 4, 2013, the Morning News Tournament of Books, presented by NOOK® by Barnes & Noble, officially begins. (If you missed the official announcement, it’s over here.)

To whet your appetite, we’re releasing the brackets today in a convenient 11x17 poster—that way you can abuse the office printer and start a literary betting pool. Our big thanks to this year’s designer, the great Liz Meyer, illustrator, typographer, and infographic sorceress.
