The Twilight series of teen novels by Stephenie Meyer has sold more than 85 million copies and spawned two blockbuster movies - with another in the works. Countless young women are enthralled by the vampire love stories that, as this broadcast's guests explain, are having an unhealthy influence on impressionable minds. Listen in as Dr. Juli Slattery interviews two women who've examined the cultural phenomenon and its negative effects on teen girls: Beth Felker Jones, author of Touched by a Vampire: Discovering the Hidden Messages in the Twilight Saga, and Kimberly Powers, author of Escaping the Vampire: Desperate for the Immortal Hero.
