Monday Night Fiction looks at ‘Hunger Games’
Hunger GamesSchreiner University’s Monday Night Fiction series will discuss “Hunger Games” by Suzanne Collins at 7 p.m., Monday, February 13, in the Scarle-Philips Room of the William Logan Library on the Schreiner campus. Dr. Chris Distel, assistant professor of biology, will lead the discussion.

“Hunger Games” is the first of a near-future sci-fi trilogy featuring 16-year-old Katniss Everdeen, who lives in Panem, the former North America. The games of the title are an annual fight for survival among young people chosen from each of Panem’s 12 districts. Although “Hunger Games” written for the young adult market, it is a good read for older readers, too, addressing issues such as slavery and conspiracy.

Monday Night Fiction is free and open to the public and is sponsored by Schreiner’s Center for Innovative Learning.
