The Hunger Games - Mythology or Prediction?

November 06, 2012 10:00 AM - 12:00 PM
Desmond Campus

Is Suzanne Collins explaining our world or predicting what our world may/will become?

This extremely popular coming-of-age saga includes the quest for love, progress/science gone horribly wrong, many orchestrated realities, the importance of pretense, and questions of ultimate power and control. For months this past year, The Hunger Games was the most widely read book in the world. It is the first book in a trilogy that leaves the reader horrified, numb, but still believing in the possibilities of a world such as Panem. We are going to discuss The Hunger Games as literature, mythology, and an expose of our media-driven world. Please purchase the book by Scholastic, Inc. and read at least to chapter eleven before the first class.
