Stephen King fans: this is It…
The author, who has written more than 50 bestselling novels – including contemporary classics such as Carrie, The Stand, The Shining, It, The Shawshank Redemption and 2011’s 11/22/63 – will be in conversation with WNPR’s Colin McEnroe on July 18th at 8 p.m. at the Bushnell in downtown Hartford. Proceeds from the event will benefit the Mark Twain House and Museum.
Tickets went on sale yesterday to members of the museum and will be available to the general public this Thursday, March 21st at 10 a.m. The cost ranges from $25 - $250 (additional service fees apply), and special VIP packages are available that will include a reception with King as well as a signed copy of his forthcoming novel, Joyland (out June 4 from Hard Case Crime).
This is a rare opportunity for local fans of King to see the author live in discussion. The recipient of the 2003 National Book Foundation Medal for Distinguished Contribution to American Letters, King lives in Maine and Florida with his wife, the novelist Tabitha King; they are contributors to many charities – including libraries – and have been honored locally for their philanthropic activities.
