"David Levithan, v-p, publisher, and editorial director for Scholastic, expanded a bit on why Collins has chosen to revisit the world of the Hunger Games at this point in time.
“As Suzanne Collins said when we announced the book, she wants ‘to explore the state of nature, who we are, and what we perceive is required for our survival,’” he said. “Panem provides extraordinarily rich material for such an exploration, and I as a reader think it’s a perpetually relevant exploration.”"---Shannon Maughan | Oct 04, 2019 Publisher's Weekly
