Although my connections at the Lubbock B&N have told me that they can't host an "official" release party due to the store moving locations that month, I can still host an FMS/lenzilikesit version of a release! So with that being said, all of my former students, family and friends who loved The Hunger Games, let's meet at Barnes & Noble at 6:00pm on September 1st to purchase Catching Fire! We can lounge on the sofas, drink coffee and read the first chapter together, or just talk about what we WANT to happen in Catching Fire. If you have a Facebook page, you can RSVP to the event by going to my page and clicking on my events calendar, or just search "Catching Fire Opening Day Party" and it should come up in the search engine, or simply click on the image above and it will take you to the Facebook page! I already have 11 confirmed attending, and 19 "maybe"...I guess some of my soon-to-be 9th graders might be too cool to attend in a few months! Everyone who is a fan is invited, and I highly encourage you to bring a friend! The reviews I've read for the novel have been phenomenal, so I'm hoping that the sequel is every bit as intriguing as its predecessor!
