It will live in infamy: The day the fansites met. It was a glorious day, and one I will not soon forget. Sunday March 11th, 2012. The fansites explored the Hob campground, interviewed campers, took photos with cast, and even met some too! But what happened afterwards was quite interesting indeed. We had a "barbecue" at one of the coolest places, the #CapitolShore
. Interestingly enough, Nightline swung by the party! Fast forward to tonight, when Nightline showed a bit on The Hunger Games. It talks about the growing fandom, the fansite "barbecue", and a bit on Emily Ansara Baines, the author of The Unofficial Hunger Games cookbook
You can watch the whole Nightline episode HERE at the ABCNews website
. Skip to the second section of the video.
Check out some screencaps from the episode!
