Do you know the agony of being a tribute in the Hunger Games?

Throughout roughout the U.S., the Hunger Games trilogy, by Suzanne Collins, has been one of the most popular books all year. That is particularly true in Sarasota, where the Hunger Games is this year’s “one-book” selection. Students in the College of Arts and Sciences at USF Sarasota-Manatee invite you to participate in the discussion of the Hunger Games. The panel of students listed below will each talk briey about an aspect of the book that has most intrigued them, and they will seek comments from the audience members about their impressions. Due to the popularity of this book among teen readers, the panel is also hopeful that high school students will participate both on the panel and in the discussion.
