Suzanne Collins' father was in the military and her family traveled a lot and were taught a lot of history. That is why the 3 books have numerous references to historical figures and nature. If anyone is interested in the meanings of the names and places in the books, a great source is Katniss the Cattail An Unauthorized Guide to Names and Symbols in Suzanne Collins' The Hunger Games
by Valerie Estelle Frankel. Also does anyone know when the next movie (Catching Fire) is to come out?
