There’s probably not a Hunger Games fan alive that wouldn’t want a first edition copy signed by Suzanne Collins. It’s one of those rare offerings that we’d all love to own.
Well now one is up for sale at the Friends of the C.H. Booth Library annual book sale this month in Newtown, CT for $2,500.
What makes this copy even more special, is that it’s not just signed by Suzanne Collins, but she’s also written in there: “May the odds Be EVER in your favor“.
The NewsTimes 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.”
The sale runs from July 14th to July 18th. You can find out more information here.
