Suzanne Collins, Mockingjay, and GREAT NEWS

Did you hear? Scholastic announced today that it has increased the first printing of Mockingjay, the final book in the nationally bestselling The Hunger Games trilogy, to 1.2 million, from a previously announced 750,000 copies. WOW.

There's a reason for the huge grins and people jumping up and down in excitement here at Kepler's today. Scholastic also announced that the New York Times bestselling author Suzanne Collins, who was named among the 2010 TIME 100 Most Influential People, will embark this fall on a twelve-market North American tour to promote the release of Mockingjay. Beginning on the August 24 (publication date for Mockingjay), Collins will tour bookstores in New York City, New Jersey, Connecticut, and Boston, her first bookstore tour since September 2008. In September 2010 she will continue the tour in Philadelphia, Baltimore, and Washington, DC, and in October she will travel to Chicago, and Minneapolis/St. Paul. The tour will conclude in November with visits to bookstores in Northern California, Seattle, and Vancouver. And yes, she's coming to Kepler's. November 3rd. Watch out for more informations as soon as I have it for you. But write it in your calendar. NOW!
