Entertainment Weekly just did an interview with Elizabeth Eulberg – who is Stephenie Meyer’s publicist and an author herself –where she talked about how Stephenie Meyer helped inspire the idea for her new book, Prom & Prejudice (pictured right):
Entertainment Weekly: In your acknowledgments you thank Stephenie Meyer for a conversation that sparked your idea for the book. What was said?
Elizabeth: We were on tour and talking about Pride & Prejudice and the different ways it’s influenced current pop culture—from Bridget Jones’s Diary to the Bollywood movie Bride & Prejudice. And I started thinking to myself, Could it be retold from a teen point of view? Pride & Prejudice is all about the Bennett sisters trying to find a husband but I didn’t want it to be about girls in high school trying to find a boyfriend. So I was like “What do girls and boys do in high school?” And then all of the sudden the title Prom & Prejudice came to mind and I said it aloud and Stephenie was like ‘Ooh, that’s really good!”
