Dr. Holly McBee will host a discussion on the novel "The Hunger Games" by Suzanne Collins, in Stoxen Library, May Hall, on Monday, Feb. 25, at 7 p.m. The event is free and open to the public. Refreshments will be provided.
The popular book takes place in the near future, and tells the story of Katniss Everdeen, a sixteen-year-old who struggles against an oppressive government and their brutal laws, which demand that children fight each other to the death once a year in the annual Hunger Games. The novel draws upon several genres and stresses themes of liberty, friendship and family.
The event is sponsored by Heart River Writers' Circle and Stoxen Library. Copies of "The Hunger Games" can be purchased at the DSU Bookstore in the Student Center. For more information on the event, click here.
