The first movie of the critically acclaimed Hunger Games trilogy by Suzanne Collins is slated to hit theaters in late March. This also happens to be the Alliance Public Library book club selection for the month of January, and copies can be picked up at the desk. We will be discussing the book on Tuesday, January 24th at 1pm and on Thursday, January 26th at 4pm. All are welcome to participate.
“Could you survive on your own, in the wild, with everyone out to make sure you don’t live to see the morning?
In the ruins of a place once known as North America lies the nation of Panem, a shining Capitol surrounded by twelve outlying districts. The Capitol is harsh and cruel and keeps the districts in line by forcing them all to send one boy and one girl between the ages of twelve and eighteen to participate in the annual Hunger Games, a fight to the death on live TV. Sixteen-year-old Katniss Everdeen, who lives alone with her mother and younger sister, regards it as a death sentence when she is forced to represent her district in the Games. But Katniss has been close to dead before-and survival.”
