Of Wolves and Vampires 

Echoing the high school battle between Goths and jocks, the mysterious, pale-faced Edward and beefy heartthrob Jacob vie for the heart of Bella in the film adaptation of Stephenie Meyer's Twilight follow-up, New Moon.

But whether you're on Team Edward or Team Jacob, there's something for everyone at various New Moon parties organized for the film's opening weekend. Though vampires like Edward only drink animal blood, the Malco Stage Cinema in Bartlett will collect human blood during a Lifeblood blood drive beginning at 10:30 p.m. on Friday night. The theater also will host a costume contest and Twilight trivia with five giveaway bags.

Vampire brand wine will be on the menu at Malco's Studio on the Square, and there will be a silent auction of restaurant gift certificates and other merchandise to benefit the C.H. Nash Museum at Chucalissa (in keeping with Jacob's Native American heritage). Museum representatives will be on hand selling beaded jewelry, and the English Major Bookstore will have copies of the Twilight books for sale. The auction will be held about an hour before each of the New Moon's screenings (7 and 9:50 p.m.) on Friday and Saturday night.

In order to build excitement about the film's release, teens and tweens are invited to a New Moon book discussion at the Benjamin L. Hooks Central Library on Thursday, November 19th, at 7 p.m. They'll wrap up talks by making Team Jake or Team Edward buttons to wear to the movie.
