The Hunger Games begin today: See the movie, read the books!

           

Today is the big day!  Hunger Games starring Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson and Liam Hemsworth is in theaters.  Set in a future where the Capitol selects a boy and girl from the twelve districts to fight to the death on live television, Katniss Everdeen volunteers to take her younger sister’s place for the latest match.  Will the movie depict Suzanne Collins’ story well enough to satisfy fans of the books?  I have a feeling that with this cast, it will be a winner.  Check back here after seeing the movie and share what you think!  Then, come to the library to check out the books!  Those of you who are seeing the movie first before reading the books will want to grab a copy of Catching Fire and Mockingjay to see what happens next after the lights come up in the theater!!
