sLiterary: WoWA Returns with Stephanie Meyer’s Twilight Saga

Posted in Uncategorized by Lora Constantine on January 25, 2009

sLiterary, Second Life—Beginning February 1, 2009, WoWA (“Works of Women Authors”) will be reading and discussing Stephenie Meyer’s epic #1 bestselling novel Twilight in conjunction with Twilight SL. All are invited to attend the group’s daily and weekly sessions: 7 PM SLT (GMT-8), Mondays thru Saturdays, and 3 PM SLT on Sundays. The discussions are tentatively held at the Long Discussion House, sLiterary or the Blackfriars Theatre, Shakespeare. Details will be posted at http://twilightsl.com

The discussions will progress at roughly a chapter a day on Mondays thru Saturdays, with a recap of the past week’s six chapters on Sundays, to finish the twenty-four chapters of Twilight in the twenty-eight days of February, 2009. Participants may wish to finish reading the novel before February to engage in more advanced discussions through the month.

While the discussions are designed to be informal, and the topics variable, the group hopes to critically analyze the novel to discover both insights in the saga itself, as well as the craft of fiction.

About WoWA

WoWA, a.k.a., “Works of Women Authors” is a sLiterary initiative with the purpose of bringing awareness to literary works written by female authors. WoWA events usually manifest in the form of a discussion group that meets on Second Life to (critically) discuss literary works written by women. The group has analyzed in depth over the period of several months the works of Ayn Rand, Virginia Woolf, and Mary Shelley. While the group has traditionally studied works by non-contemporary authors, the group is now venturing into contemporary authors.
