Suzanne Collins signs books at the National Book Festival.
Suzanne Collins has had a successful and prolific career writing for children’s television. She has worked on the staffs of several Nickelodeon shows, including the Emmy-nominated hit “Clarissa Explains It All” and “The Mystery Files of Shelby Woo.” Collins, who was named among Time magazine’s 100 Most Influential People in 2010, made her mark in children’s literature with the New York Times best-selling five-book series for middle-grade readers “The Underland Chronicles,” which has received numerous accolades in both the United States and abroad. In the award-winning “The Hunger Games” trilogy, Collins continues to explore the effects of war and violence on those coming of age. The final book in the trilogy, “Mockingjay” (Scholastic), was published in August and debuted at No. 1 on the USA Today best-seller list during its first week on sale and simultaneously appeared at No. 1 on the New York Times list.
