Because I’m clearly not the only person drunk on “The Hunger Games” books right now, we’re going to talk about the first book and movie at next month’s Feminist Kitchen Book Club + Film Series.
The first half of the book is almost all about food. Where they get it, how little there is, who took it away and why, and how the people who have power use food as a tool to make the citizens of Panem comply with their crazy rules. Katniss, our heroine, has a knack for hunting and an appreciation for even the smallest slice of apple with goat cheese. The book is a quick read, and though the waiting list for it at the library is probably a year or two long, many book stores have the paperback version on sale for about $10.
We’ll meet at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, May 8, at Thrice Cafe, 909 W. Mary. Hope to see you all there!
