Powells Books in Portland Wins Visit from Suzanne Collins
“We received a wide variety of creative and visually stunning entries to the Mockingjay display contest,” said Rachel Coun, Executive Director of Hardcover Marketing, Scholastic Trade. “But Powell’s entry, which included the centerpiece of a 17-foot cornucopia, really stood out!”
And the staff at Powell’s Books couldn’t be more thrilled.
“A visit from The Hunger Games series author, Suzanne Collins, is better than birthdays and snow days!” said Suzy Wilson from Powell’s Books children’s team. “We are ecstatic for the legions of ‘Mockingjay’ fans in our area—many of whom waited for hours for the midnight release—to have won the Scholastic contest. It is an amazing opportunity for all those passionate readers to meet their favorite author. The celebration continues, and costumes are not required…but welcomed.”
