The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes (B&N Exclusive Edition) (Hunger Games Series Prequel)
This BARNES & NOBLE EXCLUSIVE EDITION includes a reader’s group guide and a Q&A with the author, Suzanne Collins, and her editor David Levithan. The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakeswill revisit the world of Panem sixty-four years before the events of The Hunger Games, starting on the morning of the reaping of the Tenth Hunger Games.
On returning to the world of The Hunger Games, Suzanne Collins said, "With this book, I wanted to explore the state of nature, who we are, and what we perceive is required for our survival. The reconstruction period ten years after the war, commonly referred to as the Dark Days—as the country of Panem struggles back to its feet—provides fertile ground for characters to grapple with these questions and thereby define their views of humanity."
