Amber’s Stephenie Meyer Adventure:
My nerdgirls and I got lucky and Stephanie Meyer’s Breaking Dawn Concert Series was playing in Chicago just a day before we were going to be in the city for Terminus, a Harry Potter conference (there seems to be a total trend here relating between HP conferences and YAuthor Stalking). I dialed the number to the Harris Theater for 3 hours straight on a very hot day in June in order to get us tickets. When August 5 came around, I had not been able to even start the book yet as I had come down with mono a few days before (awesome, I know) and had been trying to sleep as much as possible before going to Chicago. At the concert, Stephenie Meyer answered tons of questions about the series (Needless to say, I knew EVERYTHING that happened in Breaking Dawn before reading it, oh well). She then invited Blue October’s Justin Furstenfeld to sing several of his songs that had inspired scenes in the Saga, including the song “Hate Me” which Stephenie correlates to Edward’s feelings in New Moon. Unfortunately, due to my mono, a train schedule and an EXTREMELY slow-moving line, we were unable to actually meet Stephenie Meyer and get our books signed But the concert was still an awesome experience.
