“Mockingjay” Midnight Release Event

It's been a long, hot summer of re-reading The Hunger Games and Catching Fire and wrestling with anticipation... and now, at last, the moment has come...

On Monday evening, August 23rd, come celebrate the release of Mockingjay, the third and final chapter in Suzanne Collins's phenomenal #1 New York Times-bestselling Hunger Games trilogy.

A festive line will wrap its way around the store, starting at 9:00 p.m. at Powell's City of Books on Burnside and include a costume contest, trivia battle, and giveaways. Copies of Mockingjay will go on sale at midnight.

On Tuesday morning, expect your friends, lovers, and co-workers to be bleary-eyed from lack of sleep, yet jittery from the thrill of finishing the trilogy. Don't be left out!
