Two More Tributes!



The District 1 Tributes have been chosen! Jack Quaid will play Marvel (yes he's Meg Ryan and Dennis Quaid's son!) and Leven Rambin will play Glimmer.

You can watch the casting come together with the tributes on The Hunger Games Movie Facebook page. One of my co-workers said the Facebook page unveiling of the tributes is creepy! It is a bit dramatic-what do you think of it?

  1. It looks like Lionsgate is unveiling one district's tributes per day. :D I read a comment about the creepiness of the HG facebook page somewhere else, and it kind of is creepy. (Maybe it would've been like this in Panem if everyone had a facebook there.) It's good promotion, though, and it actually feels like we're going to watch a real reality show!

  2. I used to watch Levin Ramblin on All My Children, she's a good actress. I'm glad to see her get a part.

  3. I had the opposite reaction to how they are unveiling the actors. I think it fits very well with the pomp and ceremony that goes into choosing the tributes in the books.

  4. I think it's fun too! I hadn't thought of it as creepy until someone mentioned it. It fits the books, which I think is fun.

  6. I think it's meant to be that way...and when everyone immediately starts trashing or rating the choices, they don't realize they are acting just like the citizens of Panem...

  7. I believe it is enjoyable as well! We had not considered this because weird till somebody pointed out this. This suits the actual publications, that we believe is actually enjoyable.

Dear Books: Please Update Your Libraries

There is nothing worse than coming across a book you are really enjoying only to be pulled out of it because of some outdated and incorrect library reference. I know that authors and illustrators will not always get everything 100% accurate, but I when I read books that show a very dated stereotype, or something that is just so incorrect, I always wonder why. I feel like authors and illustrators should know better! And it's not just older books-it happens in new books too! I recently read A Big Surprise for Little Card by Charise Mericle Harper and illustrated by Anna Raff.  I absolutely loved this book! It's a creative look at libraries through the eyes of a library card. It's perfect for my outreach visits and storytimes about the library and promoting what value there is in a library card. Anna Raff gets major points for illustrating a very cool and hip librarian as well! But the librarian tells card to shush and is a bit annoyed when he shows up. And then l
