VAMPIRE Mania: It’s Twilight Time

"Breaking Dawn"It’s official. Vampire fever has swept the nation. Stephenie Meyer‘s fourth YA novel about teen Bella Swan and her interesting choice in men – a hunky vampire and a hot werewolf – hits bookstores tomorrow night at midnight, and 29 book stores in the Bay Area alone are hosting vampire proms, masquerade balls and other book release parties. Looking for a book fete near you? Meyer’s Twilight Saga web site has a Google map that lists them all – vast portions of this country appear as a fluttering sea of red party flags. Meyer is also hosting a “Breaking Down” Concert tomorrow night at 4 p.m. Pacific time – check out the webcast here. We’ll be blogging from one of the East Bay book parties tomorrow night – and we’ll be very curious to see how many moms are there with their daughters – but we want to hear about the festivities where you are too. Snap a pic, dash off a description and share your experiences. (E-mail us the jpegs and we’ll post them, or click “comments” and jot down a few lines.)

For more Meyermania, check out this morning’s Times story on the books’ appeal, the trailer for the new “Twilight” movie, and this morning’s interview with Stephenie Meyer on Good Morning America.
