Hunger Games LibGuide

To help you in your reading and research for this year’s Campus Read of The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins, we have created a LibGuide.

The Hunger Games LibGuide includes a variety of information about the book and the author, including the inspiration for the story, its principal characters, information about the world of Panem (including maps), lists of other works by and about Suzanne Collins, information about the movies, web links, selected BSC Library resources, and readalikes.  There is also an overview of BSC’s Campus Read and a place where you can tell us if you found the guide to be useful.

BSC librarians have created a variety of LibGuides on a variety of subjects to help you find and use information.

Another source of information as well as a discussion forum is the BSC Campus Read blog.  Post your comments and join the conversation!

The Space Between Us – BookTalk at BSC

On Sunday, February 6, Dr. AnnMarie Kajencki will lead the second discussion in our 2011 BookTalk at BSC series. 

Our theme this year is “What Divides Us.”  Join us as we continue to explore, through literature, our differences and our inability to recognize, accept, and celebrate those differences.

On February 6, from 1 to 3 p.m. at the BSC Library, we will be talking about The Space Between Us by Thrity Umrigar.  

In this bestselling novel, the author looks at life in two Bombay households, and shows how India, even now, is ruled by class and social structure, firmly rooted in tradition and the perceived difference between the sexes.  One example of that is the relationship between Sera Dubash, an upper-class Parsi homemaker, and her servant, Bhima. Though they may share a cup of tea and chat like close friends, Sera sits in a chair while Bhima sits on the floor. Yet, even though class separates the women, they are united in their treatment at the hands of men, who consider all women inferior.

Joy Humphrey, in a Library Journal review, wrote that “Umrigar beautifully and movingly wends her way through the complexities and subtleties of these … relationships.” 

The Space Between Us is a very good book and will make for a great discussion!

For more information about BookTalk, check out the LibGuide or call us at 224.5450.

See you on February 6!
