Melissa participated in the “The Vampire Revival” panel at The New Yorker Festival with Stephen King and others in early October. WNYC, the local NPR station, now has an audio file available from that panel.
The panelists discussed why we would pay good money to be scared; the first movie that scared the panelists and the new role of the vampire as a hero. Melissa Rosenberg talked about what she changed when she wrote the screenplays for the Twilight series. And Joan Acocella referred to Edward as a “very serious dreamboat.”
