Hunger Games Featured in First Fall Monday Night Fiction

Monday Night Fiction September 2012




Schreiner University’s Monday Night Fiction series will discuss “The Hunger Games” trilogy by Suzanne Collins at 7 p.m., Monday, Sept. 17, in the Schreiner Recliner located in the Floyd & Kathleen Cailloux Campus Activity Center on the Schreiner campus. Dr. William Woods, professor of English and dean of the School of Liberal Arts, will lead the discussion.

The world of Collins’s trilogy—“The Hunger Games,” “Catching Fire” and “Mockingjay”—is a future dystopia set in the ruins of North America. The 16-year-old heroine, Katniss Everdeen, volunteers for the hunger games to spare her sister and ends up toppling a repressive government. Although written for young adults, the series has become very popular with adult readers, too, and has led to one movie version so far.

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