Fans of the "Hunger Games" book series and blockbuster won't have to go as far as Panem to compare notes with like-minded aficionados -- they need only get themselves to Chicago, which will host the first Hunger Games convention this June.
Creation Entertainment, a national event-planning company that specializes in sci-fi and series fan conventions, announced this week that they will bring the first Hunger Games Convention to Illinois on June 23 and 24 at the Westin O'Hare Hotel in Rosemont.
Stars from the movie will be in attendance, including Willow Shields (Primrose Everdeen), Jacqueline Emerson (Fox Face), Dayo Okeniyi (Thresh) and Amandla Stenberg (Rue).
Ticket prices and other details have not yet been released.
