On March 15th, my eldest son and I attended a Stephenie Meyer book signing in Los Angeles to celebrate the release of The Host movie, which was also attended by the actors Max Irons, Jake Abel, and Diane Kruger. We were there for hours, but it was totally worth it.
There were tons of people there, and they had lots of time constrictions and photo restrictions, but we were still able to speak with Stephenie and meet the cast members. Stephenie was super personable and we bonded over both having three sons. My son and I got to chat with her for a minute until the organizer moved us along in the line. But I can honestly say she was very sweet and it was a pleasure to meet her.

The cast members were also great, and though we only spoke for a second, they were all smiles, kindness, and professionalism. And in case you're wondering, Max and Jake are even better looking in person :) Saoirse Ronan couldn't make it (delayed plane?), so that was the only bummer. But I'm not complaining. It was a great time!
There was a limit on how much they would sign, so we got four books signed by Stephenie. Then we got The Host Movie Companion signed by the actors, so that was a bonus treat.
