USF Sarasota-Manatee students to host “One Book, One Community,” featuring The Hunger Games

Seven students from the University of South Florida Sarasota-Manatee (USFSM) are hosting this year’s “One Book, One Community” event on Wednesday, February 15 from 4-6pm in the Selby Auditorium on campus.  The book chosen for this year’s event is The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins.

“By participating in the One Book Event I will be able to share my didactic experience with a larger audience through interaction with the local community, that I hope will be beneficial to, and interesting for all concerned,” said USFSM student Nina Bullard.  “Because literature, as it always has been throughout civilization, is fundamental to human communication and cultural understanding as well as personal enrichment.”

During the event, the panel of students will host a thoughtful conversation in response to aspects of the book that most affected them and will be seeking audience feedback.  The students are also inviting local high school students to join the panel and offer their thoughts on this story.
