Episode 34 of Hunger Games Fireside Chat will air live on Monday, November 21, at 10pm ET/7pm PT! This week, our panel of experts will include some of our fabulous friends from Down with the Capitol and The Hob. We’ll also be joined by Sam of District Tribute, Ariel of Nerdy, Wordy, and Almost Thirty, Natalie of Crushable, Jenn of The Hunger Games Collab and Hunger Games Confessions, and Kim of Reflections of a Book Addict.
We can’t guarantee that we’ll top last week’s trailer episode, but we definitely have a very fun night planned!
– We’ll chat with non-fan Len about his reaction to the new theatrical trailer (and maybe convince him to read the books).
– In light of the release of Breaking Dawn – Part 1 this weekend, we’ll share our “big screen trailer experiences” and also examine the Twilight phenomenon as it relates to The Hunger Games: Why does the public/the media constantly compare the two series, when they’re so totally different? Will The Hunger Games surpass Twilight in ticket sales and popularity?
– At 10:30pm (or thereabouts), we’ll be joined by Aaron Geary and John Owen, the authors of The Hunger But Mainly Death Games.
– We’ll also interview S.D. King — the author of The Younger Games — and discuss Hunger Games parodies in general. Are they appropriate or not?
