Recovering the Classics: Contest and Art Display

Where: Boone County Public Library
When: From January 15 to March 1

Every great book should have a great cover, but many classics lack interesting covers and fail to grab new readers. To address this sad situation, BCPL is holding its own Recovering the Classics Contest, and we invite you to participate by creating a cover for a classic book on our list of titles.

Recovering the Classics

Check our February newsletter or entry form for contest details and requirements. Entries will be displayed at Main Library from April 3 to May 31, and a panel of local artists will choose one winning cover from each of these groups: Child (grades K to 5), Teen (grades 6 to 12), and Adult. Winners will receive a physical copy of their chosen book with their art on the cover.

Entries and entry forms must be received by March 1, 2018 and can be dropped-off at any BCPL location.
