Episode 32 of  Hunger Games Fireside Chat will air live on Monday, November 7, at 10pm ET/7pm PT! This week, our panel of experts will include some of our fabulous friends from Down with the Capitol. We’ll also be joined by Crystal of Mockingjay.net and FictionalFood.net (make sure to congratulate her on getting Fan of the Week this week!), Tiffany of Victor’s Village (and F*** Yeah District 12 and Welcome to District 12), Natalie of Crushable, and Ariel of Nerdy, Wordy, and Almost Thirty.

We hope you’ll join us this Monday night! Here’s what you can expect:

– Have you ever wondered… What would it be like if Katniss went to Hogwarts? We’ll discuss everything that’s happening in THE HOGWARTS GAMES so far. Click the link to see for yourself!
– Then we’ll weigh in on the cast photos and interviews in the December 2011 issue of Vanity Fair.
– Next, we’ll report on something extremely exciting happening the Hunger Games community. What is Panem World? We’ll have the answers from Hunger Games sites all over the world!
– At 10:30pm ET, we’ll interview Emily Ansara Baines, author of The Unofficial Hunger Games Cookbook (you can pre-order it at Amazon by clicking here).
– We’ll react to Woody Harrelson’s recent interview with MTV. What do we think about his self-described “unconventional” interpretation of our beloved character? Many seem to think that he’s reinventing Haymitch and breaking canon; what do you think?
– Professor Adam gave us all a homework assignment last week: Read Shirley Jackson’s The Lottery (a very Hunger Games-esque tale) and come prepared to discuss it! We’ll share our interpretations of this classic American short story.

You can chat with other listeners throughout the live show by using our hashtag #HGFiresideChat on Twitter! We recommend TweetChat to easily follow along with the conversation.
