A new Hunger Games novel is to be published in May, focusing on the back story of the villainous President Snow. Suzanne Collins's book series is a saga of rebellion and resistance in Panem, a dystopian version of America. The US author's original trilogy became a successful film franchise, starring Jennifer Lawrence as heroine Katniss. The prequel, The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes, will revolve around the young Snow, who was played on screen as an older man by Donald Sutherland. The new book is set 64 years before the events of The Hunger Games and details the "Dark Days" that led to the failed rebellion in Panem. Full story
