What do the new kid in school, smoldering romance, vampire orphans, chaste teenagers, and supernatural danger have in common? They are the themes explored in Stephanie Meyer's wildly successful debut novel Twighlight.

Why is the Alexandria Campus Book club reading a runaway teen-age/ young-adult romance? Twighlight's wild popularity among NOVA students means that this is what our students are reading. Think of it as competitive intelligence.

Also now a major motion picture. Surely no one would watch the film instead of reading the book -- teen idol cast notwithstanding.

The Book Club meets to discuss Twighlight on 25 Sept 2009.
