Event Description

BookTalkers discussion group meets at 6:00 pm in the Armstrong Conference Room

In a not-too-distant future, the United States of America has collapsed, to be replaced by Panem, a country divided into the Capitol and 12 districts. Each year, two young representatives from each district are selected by lottery to participate in The Hunger Games. Part entertainment, part brutal intimidation of the subjugated districts, the televised games are broadcasted throughout Panem as the participants are forced to eliminate their competitors and all citizens are required to watch. When 16-year-old Katniss's young sister is selected as her district's female representative, Katniss volunteers to take her place. She and her male counterpart, Peeta, are pitted against stronger representatives who have trained for the games their whole lives. This wildly popular book by Suzanne Collins has been described by one Charlevoix Library staff member as the “ultimate anti-war novel”.
