Twilight author Stephenie Meyer will visit Chevy Chase's famed independent bookstore Politics & Prose (5015 Connecticut Ave. NW, Washington, DC) from noon to 3 p.m. on Thursday, Feb. 21.
She'll be joined by two actors from The Host (the film adaptation based on her novel of the same name): Max Irons (son of Academy Award-winner Jeremy Irons) and Jake Abel (I am Number Four, The Lovely Bones).
"It’s part of our mission as [Washington, DC's] largest independent bookstore to bring in a wide range of authors. Stephenie is hugely popular and we’re excited to welcome her and her fans," Politics & Prose events coordinator Sarah Baline said.
"Politicians and pundits are one thing, but it’s not every day Hollywood actors hang out in our store," Baline added.
Chevy Chase, DC, is one of Meyer's stops on her nation-wide tour before The Host’s March 29 release. Politics & Prose will be the only signing event in DC, according to a statement from the bookstore.
The signing is free and open to the public, but one must have a ticket to enter the signing line. Tickets will be available at Politics & Prose starting at 9 a.m. on Thursday, Feb. 21. One must pick up a ticket in-person (one ticket per person), there is no pre-ordering of tickets, and the store cannot hold tickets.
Those who purchase a copy of Meyer’s books will receive a complimentary movie poster of The Host for Irons and Abel to sign and will be entered into a drawing for other prizes.
