For 8th grade & up: YA Book Brunch PODCAST!



“Don’t believe the hype, it’s a prequel.” Kathleen and Sam revisit Panem during the pandemic. How did the Hunger Games prequel hold up? Did we grow up too much to go back? Kathleen shares some great read-alikes and villain origin titles and Stand-alone Sam rages against prequels, sequels, and same-plot-different-story approaches. Our special guest is Library Secretary MEGAN MABEE from New Canaan High school, who discusses her article from Book Riot, “How the Hunger Games Prequel Helped Me Realize I’ve Changed.”
