'Hunger' anticipation party set in Oakland
The main branch of the Carnegie Library in Oakland will give fans an early taste of the "The Hunger Games."
At 8:30 p.m. Thursday, the library will re-open after closing hours for "A Night in Panem," which is billed as a movie anticipation party. Activity stations representing the 12 districts and the Capitol in Suzanne Collins' book will be set up, and visitors can choose teams based on the novel's characters Katniss, Peeta, Gale and Rue. "Hunger Games" challenges, from trivia and face painting to video games and cookie decorating, will be offered. Fans will get a chance to make their own movie based on the "The Hunger Games" for possible posting on YouTube.
All guests are encouraged to wear costumes, and all activities are free.
Details: 412-622-3114 or www.carnegielibrary.org .
