Hunger Games

On October 4th, fans of Suzanne Collins bestselling Hunger Games trilogy were given an epic treat.

With the latest installment in the series set for release on May 19, 2020, the long-awaited title and cover were unveiled!

The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes will greet the public to the tune of 2.5 million copies. Furthermore, the title will be published simultaneously in print, digital, and audio formats.

The prequel takes place in the fictional country of Panem, 64 years prior to the events of the Hunger Games. When announcing the book, publishing house Scholastic noted Collins' desire "to explore the state of nature, who we are, and what we perceive is required for our survival."

The cover of The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes spotlights a green target with what appears to be a gleaming gold mockingjay pin in the center; a pin differing from the one Katniss wears in the original books. As further described in Publishers Weekly, "this new-to-readers rendition of the pin features an upright mockingjay encircled by a thorny branch and a tongue-flicking snake slithering at its feet."

Spring can't get here soon enough!
