NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Megan Tingley, Executive Vice President and Publisher, Little, Brown

anniversary edition of Stephenie Meyer’s Twilight, the
groundbreaking novel that became an internationally bestselling

In celebration of the tenth anniversary, Meyer attended the annual Forever

first published,” said Meyer. “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.”

“I felt the same thrill reading this special anniversary edition as I
did when I read the manuscript a decade ago,” commented Tingley. “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.”
