On Friday, March 19th the library book group joined the students at St. Scholastica in Covington via Skype for a discussion of dystopian literature and the book Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins. The discussion focused on the romance between Katniss and Peeta, as well as Katniss and Gale. There were also some disagreements over the character motivation of Katniss. This was one of the few times that the book group singled out one book for discussion. I thought that it was very successful. However, one student thought it was chaotic because students from both schools sometimes talked at the same time. Also, she realized that she did not enjoy the book as much as the others.
I can't wait until next Monday when we Skype with the author, Susan Pfeffer.
