New Moon Prom Night At Del City Library

It’s love at first bite. 

Teens are cordially invited to attend the New Moon Masquerade Prom at the Del City Library, 4509 SE 15th on Thursday, November 19, from 6 to 8pm.  It’s an occasion to celebrate the “Twilight Saga” book series about the high school romance between a normal red-blooded girl and her vampire boy friend.  Love is in the air.  Also bats.

“We’re having a big prom-style masquerade party,” said librarian Lindsay Egle, “for the release of the movie ‘New Moon,’ the second installment of the ‘Twilight’ series.  Our prom will include a DJ, blood punch, werewolf kibble, also known as snacks, a trivia contest, a costume contest, and a rousing tournament of Pin the Tail on the Werewolf, and other games.”

The “Twilight Saga” by author Stephanie Meyer is one of the most popular series of romance stories for teens.  It chronicles the continuing tale of Bella and her love for the vampire Edward.  The Del City Library, which is real, is joining with Forks High School, from the novels, to present an evening that is so much fun, it’s supernatural.

“We’re setting a backdrop so we can take real prom photos,” Egle added.  “Thirty years from now, when our prom attendees have teens of their own, their kids can look at the pictures,

think they’re the real thing, and wonder why their parents were so weird when they were in high school.”

The New Moon Masquerade Prom is free and open to teens, werewolves, and Immortals.
