HCC March Madness is back!


Now in its 8th year, HCC March Madness takes 64 books and matches them head-to-head until one is crowned champion. Starting on March 9th, readers will vote in each match-up to determine which book advances to the next round. There are 6 rounds in total, and at the end one book will be announced the winner. And it’s all determined by YOUR votes!

(Ready to vote? Head over to hccmarchmadness.ca!)

Looking for ways to support your favourite book? You can tweet, post, or share on social media using the hashtag #HCCMarchMadness. It’s all in good fun, so feel free to champion as many books as you’d like.

The best part about this competition? One of YOU will take home a library of all 64 HCC March Madness books! Once you’ve voted on each match-up you’ll be asked to submit a contest entry. You can vote every hour, but you can only enter the contest once a day. If you have any questions or concerns please email hccontests@harpercollins.com. Sorry, our contest is only open to Canadians, but anyone can vote.
