Remember a few months back when I blogged about our book club Flips Flipping Pages sending a gift to Hunger Games author Suzanne Collins?
Thanks to our friends from Scholastic, we were able to send Suzanne Collins a miniature Philippine flag and a photo from our April Hunger Games book discussion.
But wait — the story doesn’t end there! I opened my email today and found this awesome photo in my inbox:
This is so totally awesome!!! I’ve had this photo in my inbox for a full day now and I still can’t get over it! Hahaha, I picked out the flag and bundled the package myself!
Thank you to Ms. Enoy Ferriol of Scholastic Philippines for transporting our gift and presenting it to Suzanne Collins. And thank you to Ms. Joyce Bautista and Ms. Roselle Masirag of Scholastic Philippines for giving the Flippers the chance to put together a token of our appreciation for Suzanne Collins.
The fandom doesn’t end there for the Flippers, however! Flips Flipping Pages, together with New Worlds Alliance, will join the Mockingjay launch mounted by Scholastic Philippines and National Book Store. That’s on August 29, 1-5 pm at NBS Bestsellers at Robinson’s Galleria — there will be a book trailer presentation, a book discussion, a Live Action Role Play, a photo booth, Cinna’s Corner (tattoo booth), a “Which HG Character Are You” online quiz, a Haymitch Bar (yum!), and other activities to celebrate the release of Mockingjay and Hunger Games fandom! Squee!
You can sign up for the event at the Flips Flipping Pages discussion thread, or holler out here on my blog! Check back around next week, and I’ll have more details posted on the event.
