Has Suzanne Collins been spotted in Atlanta?
Reports have been surfacing that Hunger Games cast members have been spotted in Atlanta. The latest online report today is that Suzanne Collins was reportedly spotted dining at a restaurant in Atlanta.
According to Access Atlanta’s The Buzz :
Josh Hutcherson, who plays Peeta, was loading up on household supplies at a Target the other day while Liam Hemsworth, who plays Gale, posed for this nice photo outside the Atlantic Station Meehan’s recently.
Series author Suzanne Collins also made the trip South. She was spotted dining at Lure not long ago.
We’re told “Catching Fire” will film a huge scene at the Georgia World Congress Center but that filming will take place outside of metro Atlanta, too.
While Suzanne’s presence in Atlanta remains unconfirmed, I think it’s possible she is definitely there with filming reportedly scheduled to start next week!!

Suzanne Collins ‘Gregor The Overlander’ lands the #11 spot on USA Today’s Best Sellers List
Looks like the Hunger Games Trilogy isn’t the only Suzanne Collins book on USA Todays best sellers list. According to the most recent report from USA Today :
Hunger Games author Suzanne Collins is taking up even more room near the top of the list this week.
A surprising addition: her 2004 novel, Gregor the Overlander: Underland Chronicles Book One, at No. 11. It’s the tale of a young boy looking for his father in the world beneath New York City.
Why the high spot for a book that made the list only once before, back in 2007, at No. 140? Perhaps because Amazon.com on Saturday offered the e-book for a one-day-only price of $1.99, 62% off list price. Meanwhile, Collins’ breakthrough Hunger Games series continues to sell strongly, holding the Nos. 6, 7 and 8 spots.
Who’s read Gregor The Overlander? What do you guys think?

Forbes: Suzanne Collins is a “rising star to watch”
Forbes recently put out their Celebrity 100 list, and while Suzanne Collins did not make the list, she did make Forbes 10 Rising Stars to Watch list.
Every year when we start to work on the Celebrity 100, there are up-and-comers who we hope will make the list. Competing against the likes ofJohnny Depp and Oprah Winfrey, many ultimately don’t. Here are 10 of the celebrities who didn’t make it this year but who we think you should be keeping an eye on.
Author Suzanne Collins has a good chance of making the list next year. There are more than 36 million copies of her Hunger Games trilogy in print and the film based on the first book has earned $620 million at the global box office. Collins will get a tiny slice of the profit from the film but it could be enough to land her on our list.

Suzanne Collins is one of the ” Most Powerful Moms of 2012″
Mother’s Day is this weekend, and WorkingMothers.com has just posted their list of the “most powerful moms of 2012″ and it includes our very own Suzanne Collins!
Most Powerful Mom: Children’s Literature Star
Children: Son, 17, Daughter, 12
Suzanne Collins seems ubiquitous these days, with the kid-lit mantle proverbially passed to her by J.K. Rowling. Her bestselling book series, The Hunger Games trilogy, is still breaking records; and now there’s a blockbuster movie inspired by the first book—with more to come. Collins began her career working for children’s television, ultimately becoming the head writer for the PBS show Clifford’s Puppy Days. She also wrote children’s books including The Underland Chronicles and When Charlie McButton Lost Power.
But it was The Hunger Games that struck gold for the mom of two: The first book was released in 2008; the second, Catching Fire, in 2009 and the third, Mockingjay, in 2010. The Hunger Games trilogy of books has been on the New York Times bestseller list more than 130 consecutive weeks. And amazon.com announced this year that Collins had become the best-selling Kindle author of all time. Lions Gate Entertainment acquired worldwide distribution rights to a film adaptation of The Hunger Games, and Collins adapted the book for the screen herself. The move went on to shatter records and had one of the highest gross opening weekends in movie history. Timemagazine named Collins one of 2012’s Most Influential People in the World.
Press-shy Collins said last year: “I’m not a very fancy person. I’ve been a writer a long time, and right now The Hunger Games is getting a lot of focus. It’ll pass. The focus will be on something else. It’ll shift. It always does. And that seems just fine.” Modest words for one of the most powerful women in the world.

VOTE for Suzanne Collins & Jennifer Lawrence to be included in TIME magazine’s 2012 Time 100 Poll
Looks like Suzanne Collins and Jennifer Lawrence are included in the nominations for Time magazines annual Time 100 poll. Voting ends April 6th so check it out!!
Occupation: Writer, movie producer
As if selling more than 23 million copies of her dystopian Hunger Games series weren’t enough, now Collins is a movie mogul. She co-produced and co-wrote the movie adaptation of The Hunger Games, the one you might have noticed at the multiplex. Next up for her is a highly personal, illustrated children’s book about her experience of missing her father when he was posted in Vietnam. Presumably she’ll also be ushering the rest of her trilogy onto the screen. The odds seem ever in her favor.
Long before 2012, film critics (and movie executives) knew that Jennifer Lawrence had the goods. Her bracing performances in such films as The Burning Plain and Winter’s Bone — for which she received an Oscar nomination — set her apart as a performer to watch. Her debut last summer in X-Men: First Class introduced her to mainstream audiences. And on March 23, with her high-profile debut as the star of the hot new franchise The Hunger Games, Lawrence ascended to the ranks of Kristen Stewart and Natalie Portman as one of the most bankable stars of her generation.
