Sponsored by the Kern Reading Association and Kern County Superintendent of Schools, Battle of the Books is a reading incentive program for Grades 4-6, in which students demonstrate their abilities and knowledge of the books they have read in a quiz format similar to TV's "Family Feud."

The event has become so popular that last year it was expanded to two days. This year, 800 students from more than 60 public and private schools are expected to participate.
