We all dream of having a chance to share how much certain stories mean to us with the authors that brought them to life in the first place, and now a select few fans will get that chance thanks to Picturestart, Brat TV, and Facebook Watch's new series Letters To. Letters To is a new digital Facebook Watch series that gives fans the chance to meet their favorite authors and share the impact they've had on their lives, and they're going to be all sorts of surprised when their favorite authors read their letters. The series is available now, and is kicking off with none other than Twilight Saga author Stephenie Meyer, and you can check out the new episode in the video above.
Meyer is one of several authors that are taking part in the series, which also includes R.L. Stine (Point Fear, Goosebumps), Elizabeth Acevedo (With The Fire On High, and Veronica Roth (The Divergent Series, Chosen Ones) just to name a few.
