November Book Reveal!

The Hunger Games- Suzanne Collins

Join us on Wednesday, November 11th at 7 PM in the Off the Leaf Lounge to discuss!


Tie-in Campaign (November 18th):  For the third year in a row, the larger HPA organization is challenging chapters to raise awareness about income inequality. As we saw in the Hunger Games, there is a divide between the conditions for the districts and the capitol, a divergence that is mirrored somewhat by our real world—in lack of educational opportunities, income inequality, healthcare coverage issues, and a variety of other problems that arise from a disparity beyond simply “working hard” and “not working hard enough”. Odds in Our Favor seeks to address the issues in the districts and help make sure the odds are in EVERYONE’S favour. As with last year, we welcome community members to participate by telling us their inequality story on twitter with the hashtag #MyHungerGames (and if you @HPAbillings, it will show up on our website!) or on tumblr by providing a story and even a picture. If you’d like to find out what’s being done to help the 99% and how you can get involved (even in small ways), meet up with us at the premiere of Mockingjay to receive some information on Represent.us (to help our voices be heard by congress) and other initiatives to balance the inequalities we see in our society.

In honour of the release of Mockingjay part two (Hunger Games movie/book #3), the Harry Potter Alliance is once again calling on members of the community to share the story of their experiences with economic inequality. In order to add the voices of our Billings community to this discussion, we welcome people to participate in this event. We've created an easy-to-fill-out form that will help your voice be heard, as well as telling you other ways in which you can add to the conversation, if you so desire. We'd really like to hear from you so we can learn how to make the odds in everyone's favour.

Come find us at the release to learn more, visit Odds in Our Favour to participate, or join up with us at our November HPA meeting to hear about our collaboration with Fight for 15 again!
