Hunger Games

The Hunger Games and the Science Fiction Tradition

StarShipSofa has invited me back to do another live lecture event in the HoloDeck Workshop Series. I'm really looking forward to it!

The Hunger Games and the Science Fiction Tradition

How does the story of Katniss Everdeen – the District 12 tribute, the Girl on Fire, the Mockingjay -- fit into the genre tradition? Join award-winning scholar Amy H. Sturgis as she discusses The Hunger Games (both in book and film form) as science fiction. The lecture will consist of four sections followed by a live Q&A session. This two-hour event will take place 11am-1pm EST on September 1, 2012.
