Reading and Resistance: A Deep Green Resistance exploration of Mockingjay, Hunger Games, and Resistance. What are the lessons?
This is the first of Deep Green Resistance Chicago’s new Reading and Resistance series.
Mockingjay, the third book in the Hunger Games trilogy by Suzanne Collins, presents a compelling look at Katniss and the underground resistance revolting against overwhelming odds.
Members of Deep Green Resistance Chicago and participants will explore questions about this charged novel. What would the rebels think about our culture? Are we so different than Katniss and her crew? Do we have the courage necessary to imagine a serious rebellion? Perhaps revolution is unthinkable in our highly surveilled culture, or is it really not only possible, but necessary?
The book Mockingjay has been out since 2010, so by all means, read the book, prior to the event, and if you haven’t, this is a spoiler alert.
We hope you can come, and bring your most fertile and rebellious imagination.
