Pittsburg Public Library will celebrate the release of “Breaking Dawn,” final volume in Stephenie Meyer’s best-selling “Twilight” series, at 3 p.m. Friday.
Actual release date of the book is Saturday. The program will be open free to everyone aged 12 and older.
The “Twilight” series focuses on the romance between Bella, the new girl in school, and Edward, the boy she meets who just happens to be a vampire. This has become the most popular book series for young adults since Harry Potter.
The first book, “Twilight,” was released in 2005 and named one of the American Library Association’s “Top Ten Best Books for Young Adults,” and Amazon.com named it one of the best books of the decade. “Twilight” and its sequels, “New Moon” and “Eclipse,” have so far sold more than 5 million copies and have been translated into 20 different languages.
Fans of the series are invited to come to the library to discuss the books and the upcoming “Twilight” movie, play “Twilight” trivia and win prizes. Refreshments will be served.
A drawing for a copy of both “Breaking Dawn” and “Eclipse” will be held during the program. There will be a limit of one entry per person, and the winner must be present. A coupon will be presented to the winner of “Breaking Dawn” to be redeemed on Saturday at the library.
Anyone needing additional information may call the library’s Youth Services Department at 231-8110.
