The Milton Public Library is planning to fight hunger with “The Hunger Games.”

On Nov. 14, which is a half-day for Milton Public Schools students, the library’s Teen Services Department will host a screening of the movie, “The Hunger Games.”

The movie is a screen adaptation of the first book of three by Suzanne Collins. It tells the story of the post-apocalyptic nation of Panem. The Hunger Games are the nation's annual event during which one boy and one girl is selected to compete in a battle to the death. The film is rated PG-13.

Students in sixth through 12th grade are encouraged to attend and bring canned food or dry goods that will be collected and donated to the Milton Community Food Pantry.

The library will provide pizza and drinks and admission is free. The movie will begin at noon and the library is located at 476 Canton Ave.

For more information about this event or other teen programs at the library contact Emily Calkings at 617-698-5757 or via e-mail at ecalkins@ocln.org.
