Book Scavenger Hunt (July 2016)

A hidden book. A found cipher. A game begins . . . .

For the month of July, children are invited to take part in a village-wide Book Scavenger Hunt. Children can pick up their scavenger hunt passport at Battenkill Books beginning on July 1st. Clues will be hidden in nine local businesses and organizations and must be solved before players can move on to the next location! Once participants have solved all nine puzzles, they bring their passports back to Battenkill Books to enter a drawing for free books, gift certificates and other prizes.

The contest coincides with the publication of Book Scavenger by Jennifer Chambliss Bertman, a middle grade novel in which twelve-year-old Emily and her new friend James must follow clues in an odd book they find, hoping to figure out its secrets and trying to solve a mystery at the book’s heart. The Book Scavenger Hunt at Battenkill Books is a free event that runs all of July, and is intended for ages 8 and up.
