'Hunger Games' Author Suzanne Collins Says Goodbye to the Series

With the release of the final movie in The Hunger Games franchise, author Suzanne Collins is saying goodbye to the series she wrote and turned into a worldwide phenomenon.

The author posted the goodbye letter in a blog post on Scholastic’s website.

“Having spent the last decade in Panem, it’s time to move on to other lands. But before I do, I’d like to say a tremendous thank you to everyone associated with the film franchise,” Suzanne wrote. “I’m thrilled with how this quartet of films, which I find both faithful to the books and innovative in its own right, has been brought to life on the screen.”

“There’s no Hunger Games without Katniss. I hoped for someone good enough, and I got someone who exceeded all my expectations. Jennifer Lawrence, your emotional depth, luminous presence, and sheer power carry this story and I will always be grateful to you for opening the door and allowing it to come into your life,” Suzanne said while thanking the star of the movie.
