Rare Signed 1st Edition of The Hunger Games on Sale
May the odds be EVER in your favor! Love, Suzanne Collins
As News Times reports:
“Everything that comes in for the sale is dropped off in boxes,” said Toni Earnshaw, a library Board of Trustees member. “Our sorters are trained to look for first editions, and one of our sorters spotted this one.”
Earnshaw said finding the “Hunger Games” first edition was exciting enough, but what happened next was icing on the cake.
The exact facts are being kept a mystery, but somehow, someone contacted Collins, who not only signed the book — she added the inscription, “May the odds be EVER in your favor. Love Suzanne Collins.”
“It’s such an interesting experience working on the sale,” said Denise Kaiser, book sale manager, “but we don’t that often have contemporary books of extraordinary value.”
This gem is on sale for $2,500 at Reed Intermediate School, 3 Trades Lane, Newtown CT. July 14th to 18th. This copy of The Hunger Games will be in the Rare and Collectible section of the sale.
