We’re still riding the Deathly Hallows 2 wave, so please excuse the traces of magic still lingering in Tuesday night’s program!
  • As always, we’ll start out by bringing you the latest Hunger Games-related news (including some exciting info about the San Diego Comic Con)
  • We’ll briefly talk with the folks at Montgomery High School about their goal to have all incoming 9th graders read The Hunger Games at the same time (they’re currently accepting donations to help pay for the 600 copies!)
  •  Industry expert Kit Bowen of will join us as we take a look at the opening weekend box office stats for Deathly Hallows 2 and discuss what the success AND end of the Harry Potter franchise mean for The Hunger Games
