Stephenie Meyer, author of the mega-crazy best-selling Twilight series, will participate in a free book signing in Philly on February 22 at the Free Library's Central Branch. Each attendee can get only two books signed (so choose your favorites, teen girls and vamp-obsessed housewives). Meyer's appearance was just announced so that's why you don't see any tent cities of rabid fans popping up around the Free Library yet.

Meyer will be in town to promote "The Host," the film adaption of her book. Joining Meyer will be "The Host" actors Max Irons (son of Jeremy) and Jake Abel. "The Host," about a race of parasitic aliens, hits theaters March 29, and stars Saoirse Ronan.

Want more literary goings-on in Philly? Today, I've got notes on a New Hope author's scandalous new memoir and interview with new Philly resident, Pulitzer Prize-nominated Karen Russell (Swamplandia) in today's column.

Free Library of Philadelphia Central Branch, 1901 Vine St., 11 a.m., Fri., Feb. 22, free, 215-686-5322, freelibrary.org
