Collection of Suzanne Collins Interviews Online

I hope in the coming weeks to comment on each of these two interview sets, interviews with the author of the Hunger Games trilogy, Suzanne Collins, but wanted to share these with those who may not be aware of them and to ask for links to other Suzanne Collins commentary on the books about which author-insights or lines of sight all of us should know.

At Scholastic.com: A series of five talks filmed after the publication of Hunger Games (the link takes you to the first talk and the other four are accessible at that page).

The Border’ Book Club Interviews: A series of seven talks filmed after the publication of Catching Fire (the link takes you to the first talk and the other six are accessible at that page).

If you cannot resist commenting on Ms. Collins’ remarks, please refer to the specific segment of which interview, e.g., “Scholastic, part 3, 1:43,” so we can access what you’re talking about!

(Check out the Borders Book Club interview with Mrs. Meyer about Twilight, too, while you’re on that page!)

    I popped back onto the site for the first time in a while and was glad to see The Hunger Games on your not-just-for-kids-lit radar. My daughter (age 13) and I have thoroughly enjoyed the first two; I have a Mockingjay countdown clock on my blog to prove it.

    The “unwitting hero” (in this case, heroine) of the revolution theme reminded me of our favorite boy Wizard, of course. Though a caution for parents… unlike Harry, these are true “young adult” novels. Probably best suited for 12 +

    I’m interested in hearing your thoughts on this series.

  2. Dear Louise,

    Great to hear from you again!
