CHICAGO—Taylor Lautner joins the Celebrity READ Poster campaign this month, appearing on the
New Moon Poster from ALA Graphics. Lautner, who holds Stephenie Meyer’s book, “New Moon,” will star in the highly anticipated movie adaptation this November. With more than 53 million books in print, hundreds of fan sites and numerous critical accolades and awards, “The Twilight Saga,” of which “New Moon” is the second book, has become a worldwide sensation and cultural phenomenon among readers of all ages. Â

Playing Jacob Black, Lautner will appear on screen alongside Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson, who appeared together last year in the extremely popular ALA Graphics
Twilight Poster. In “New Moon,” Bella Swan (Stewart) is devastated by the abrupt departure of her vampire love, Edward Cullen (Pattinson), but her spirit is rekindled by her growing friendship with the irresistible Jacob Black. Suddenly she finds herself drawn into the world of the werewolves, ancestral enemies of the vampires and finds her loyalties tested.

New Moon and
Twilight Posters at the
ALA Store, where your purchases fund advocacy, awareness and accreditation programs for library professionals worldwide.
