‘Dawn’ Has Broken

Hundreds of news accounts from around the US and Canada attest to the fact that thousands of teenage girls (and many of their mothers as well as a few boys) waited until after midnight last night to get their hands on a copy of Breaking Dawn and then stayed up all night reading it.

The author, Stephenie Meyer, had a long day herself. She kicked it off with an appearance on GMA and ended it with a concert in New York. Every appearance involved screaming fans.

The Times compares this receoption to one of her first appearances, in 2005, at the Changing Hands bookstore in Tempe, Ariz.; “the response for a first-time novelist was typically lukewarm.”
