Battle of the Books is a competition team for students in elementary, intermediate and middle school. The team meets after school on Mondays throughout the year to practice and review assigned books. The county Battle of the Books competition is held in the spring of each year at Buncombe County Schools' district office. Students at participating schools read books from a list established by the state Battle of the Books committee and then compete in quiz-bowl-style tournaments to test their knowledge of these books. Eblen Intermediate's Battle of the Books team for the school year is comprised of 12 members and is coached by Mrs. Kristin Johnson, Media Coordinator.
