The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins was a trilogy of best-selling young adult dystopian novels published beginning in 2008 that became four record-breaking feature-length films that were released beginning in 2012. Collins drew upon real-world geography, music, and culture in constructing her fanciful world. This book explores that Appalachian geography, culture, and music that connect with The Hunger Games. The author, Thomas W. Paradis is a professor of geography and community planning at Butler University.
