Twilight  tempted the imagination. New Moon made readers thirsty for more. Eclipse turned the saga into a worldwide phenomenon. And now, the book that everyone has been waiting for… Breaking Dawn, the final book in the #1 bestselling Twilight saga, will take your breath away.

Stephenie Meyer’s sophisticated teen vampire novels have created the kind of response from teens and adults that we haven’t seen since the debut of Harry Potter. Barnes & Noble will be celebrating the August 2 release of Breaking Dawn by hosting special events in the stores. Select stores are staying open late August 1 and hosting midnight release parties.  And be sure to call or visit your local store to reserve your copy for the night of the party; you can also visit the website to pre-order your copy if you like.  The stores at Town CenterAlpharetta, and Cumming will all be hosting a book release event for youth and teens on August 1 at 10:00 PM—please visit each site or call for more details.
