The members of the Harvard Lampoon had two reasons for writing their “Twilight” parody. “One of our super-goals is to meet Stephenie Meyer,” says Matthew Grzecki, president of the student-staffed magazine and one of the authors of “Nightlight: A Parody” (Random House, $14).

 

The more honest reason is that the 13 staff writers just wanted a break from their studies.

 

“It was the end of the school year, so basically our options were either doing this book or going to the library and studying hard science for our exams,” says Grzecki.
