Shari Anderson

The Hunger Games

Artist: Shari Anderson

Banned/Challenged Book: The Hunger Games

Reason for Banning: This book has been criticized (by adults) for glorifying violence – and because it is anti-ethnic, anti-family, is satanic, and uses offensive language.

Excerpt from Artist’s Statement: I painted a picture of Katniss, in her television interview where she becomes the “girl on fire,” which illustrates the themes of the book including standing up for what you believe, integrity, and leadership – all something I want my children, and all kids, to think about.
