“I Love Edward” Teen Movie Contest Creates Excitement at Ralph Ellison Library

He’s the sexiest vampire since Barnabas Collins smoldered in his coffin on “Dark Shadows” 38 years ago. 

He’s Edward Cullen, undead blood-sipper and literary heartthrob from the “Twilight” series of books by author Stephenie Meyer, and there’s only one way to win a date with him.  Well, sort of a date.

The Ralph Ellison Library, 1918 NE 23rd, is sponsoring an “I Love Edward” Movie Contest during Teen Read Week, October 19-24. 

“We’re inviting all teens,” said librarian Kim Ventrella, “to come to the library during Teen Read Week and enter to win two tickets to the opening night of the movie ‘New Moon’ and a ‘Twilight’ gift basket. “’New Moon’ is the first sequel to ‘Twilight.’  It opens in theaters on November 20 and personally, I can’t wait.”

Teens interested in entering the contest can drop by the Ralph Ellison Library every day between October 19 and 24 and enter.  Just one entry per person will be accepted per day.

Sorry, moms.  This one is for teens only.

For more information call 424-1437.
