And the Title Is…MOCKINGJAY

The title of the third and final volume in Suzanne Collins’ Hunger Games series is announced in the current issue of USA Today.

It’s not The Victors, but Mockingjay and it will be published on Aug. 24th. USA Today explains,

In the series, mockingjays are offspring of mockingbirds and jabberjays, a government-bred mutant designed to spy on rebels. Mockingjays become symbols of resistance.

Collins is at work on the screenplay for The Hunger Games (Lionsgate bought the rights last year; no cast or director announced yet).
