Okay, the comparative literature geek in me thinks this is just brilliant. This month the Hennepin County Library is hosting two “literary smackdowns” in which teams of teenagers will debate and defend their favorite fantasy series/publishing & film phenoms — Harry Potter or Twilight. The audiences will pick the winning team. And of course, teens are encouraged to wear costumes supporting their favorite characters. The public debates take place on October 20 at Central Library and October 27 at Ridgedale Library in Minnetonka.
Either way, Robert Pattinson wins, doesn’t he?
