Tonight at 7 PM I’ll be participating in an event at the Brookline Booksmith, at 279 Harvard Street in Brookline, Massachusetts, along with the wonderful authors David Levithan, Rainbow Rowell and Bill Konigsberg. I intend to introduce myself as Suzanne Collins, who wrote The Hunger Games books. I read today that, due to the phenomenal success of the Hunger Games movies, the trilogy may become a theme park attraction. If you’ve read the terrific books or seen the first two films, you may see this as a challenge. It could be the first ride where after children enter the Hunger Games arena, most of them won’t survive. This could be a problem for repeat business, and the lawsuits would be endless. But there could be marketing potential in bows and arrows, hatchets and delicious poison berries.
Tommorrow I’ll be in Boston, on a panel at the NCTE Conference on Adolescent Literature. Maybe I’ll bring a machete.
