They read it – they love it – and some are willing to TALK ABOUT IT!!!
SURPRISE! SHOCK! HORROR!
Ok, that’s a bit over the top, but hey, it’s a new year, I’ve gotten some sleep, and I’m very keen on teens reading, getting together, talking about books and movies, and having fun.
By all accounts, that’s exactly what happened at the Hope Mills Branch on December 18th during the program “A Vampire Story,” a book club/party celebrating the recent release of the movie Twilight, based on the bestselling novel by Stephenie Meyers. Here’s the details:
Edward Cullen Madness
Teens descended upon the Hope Mills Branch Library that Monday for an evening of nonstop Twilight mania a la the “A Vampire Story” program. And mania it was. Everyone had a fabulous time, decorating cupcakes, making Twilight magnets (complete with “sparkle”), and arguing about the relative hotness of Edward and Jacob. “When’s the next Twilight party?” they asked. “This is fun!” they proclaimed. Stephenie Meyer, I officially love you. -Vicki

Thanks for hosting this event, Vicki! Teens also quizzed each other with trivia from the book and shared their favorite quotes from the movie.
