February 22, 2012

The tour will allow fans the opportunity to meet members of the cast, participate in Q&As and enter giveaways to win Hunger Games stuff . The frenzy will be around as plans are underway to adapt the other 2 books in the saga…

The story involves a young love triangle playing out against a dystopian future where North America has been divided into twelve oppressed districts, each of which is forced to send tribute in the form of a boy and a girl to compete in a televised battle to the death once a year.
