THE HILLYWOOD SHOW® JOINS STEPHENIE MEYER DAY LINEUP
Creators of the TWILIGHT parody to connect with fans for a weekend of celebrations
FORKS, WA – Hannah and Hilly Hindi, creators of The Hillywood Show®, are joining with TWILIGHT fans and the citizens of Forks to celebrate Stephenie Meyer Day. Although the Hindi sisters have visited Forks three times, this will be their first appearance at the annual celebration of Stephenie Meyer and her literary world. Now in its fifth year, Stephenie Meyer Day 2011 encompasses an entire weekend of TWILIGHT-themed events from September 9-11.
“Stephenie Meyer Day has grown as an event every year, and with the addition of The Hillywood Show®, this year will be the best yet,” said Staci Chastain, organizer of Stephenie Meyer Day 2011. “The weekend isn’t just a celebration of Stephenie Meyer – it’s a celebration of all TWILIGHT fans.”
The Hillywood Show® will talk with TWILIGHT fans about parody, scriptwriting and filming during a literary symposium. They will also join designer John Henson, owner of The Twilight Costume Collection, for photo opportunities and discussions about costuming. In addition to their other work, the Hindi sisters will screen their immensely popular TWILIGHT, NEW MOON and ECLIPSE parodies.
“We are honored to be included in Stephenie Meyer Day. Without Stephenie Meyer and Twilight, The Hillywood Show® wouldn’t be where it is today,” said Hilly Hindi, co-creator of The Hillywood Show®. “Forks is truly a magical place, and The Hillywood Show® will never pass on an opportunity to visit it over and over again!”
Other guests for the weekend include York Baur, director of TWILIGHT IN FORKS; Dr. Natalie Wilson, author of SEDUCED BY TWILIGHT; Veronica Blake, author of historical romance novels; and Natalia Cherjovsky, PhD, who wrote her doctoral dissertation from Oxford on TWILIGHT.
Additional events include scene recreation photo opportunities with the official Stephenie Meyer Day cast of TWILIGHT lookalikes; a bridal shower for Bella Swan; a St. Marcus Day Festival party; and a TWILIGHT scavenger hunt. Vendors of TWILIGHT-themed goods will be selling creative and one-of-a-kind merchandise, and those who wish to sell their goods during the weekend are encouraged to contact the Stephenie Meyer Day organizational committee.
