Stephenie Meyer and Little, Brown announce the release of the Twilight Tenth Anniversary Edition, coming October 6, 2015. Stephenie will also be attending various book signing events to celebrate—get all the details!
This past weekend, Twilight fans descended upon Forks, WA for the annual Forever Twilight in Forks gathering. But what made this year extra special is that it’s the ten-year anniversary of Twilight‘s original release back in October 2005. Stephenie Meyer joined fans in Forks to celebrate our decade-long love affair with Bella Swan and Edward Cullen. She signed autographs and took photos with fans.
But even more exciting, Stephenie and Little, Brown announced that they’ll be publishing a special tenth anniversary edition of Twilight! This edition will be released in a few weeks on Tuesday, October 6 and includes the original novel as well as exclusive, new bonus content (though the details have yet to be revealed).
In a press release, Stephenie expressed her excitement:
“It’s amazing to me that ten years have passed since Twilight was first published. For me, this anniversary is a celebration of the fans, with all of their incredible passion and dedication. I’m excited to get to spend time with them again.”
Megan Tingley, Executive Vice President of Little, Brown, shared the same sentiments:
“I felt the same thrill reading this special anniversary edition as I did when I read the manuscript a decade ago. I’m pleased we have this opportunity for devoted fans to relive the extraordinary Twilight experience, as well as for a new generation of readers to discover it for the very first time.”
Stephenie will be participating in this year’s New York Comic Con for an event and autographing on Thursday, October 8 at 1:45pm. She’ll also sit down with Josh Horowitz of MTV After Hours to reflect on the tenth anniversary and discuss the new edition of her landmark novel.
Around the time of the release, Stephenie will do additional book signings in the New York City and Los Angeles areas.
This is such exciting news…especially if the “bonus content” includes the rest of Midnight Sun! (Is this wishful thinking???)
