Since the Harry Potter series hit bookshelves, literature for children and teens has become a big deal commercially. The Harry Potter films are the most lucrative film series of all time, eclipsing Star Wars and The Lord of the Rings. And last week saw yet another film based on a teen franchise—Twilight: Breaking Dawn Part II—hit theaters.
But if you're looking for an inexpensive way to see a film based on a favorite young adult novel, check out the Books To Film Movie Night at the Library at Collister.
This week's presentation is The Hunger Games, based on Suzanne Collins' novel of the same name.
Living in a post-apocalyptic dystopian North America, the story's heroine, Katniss, must face off against other youths with her trademark bow and arrow in deadly games as penance for her home territory's uprising against its central authority. The film is rated PG-13.
Books To Film Movie Night is FREE and begins at 6:30 p.m. For more info, call Audra Green at 208-562-4995.
