HogwartsProfessors Elizabeth Baird-Hardy and John Granger talk with Drs Amy H. Sturgis and Lana Whited at MuggleNet Academia about the new book Critical Insights: The Hunger Games. The book, edited by Prof Whited, includes essays by a host of Potter Pundits, to include Profs Baird-Hardy, Sturgis, and another HogwartsProfessor faculty member, Louise Freeman. Keith Hawk produced the show, as always, and it was a rollicking adventure, trust me.
First, find out how Hunger Games resolves the Gordian Knot of Dystopian fiction, what the series draws from Appalachian culture, and what serious readers of Harry Potter recognize in Katniss’ adventures from their experiences within the Wizarding World. Then? Let me know what you think of the show in the comment boxes below! Enjoy!
