Stephen King: Making rare public appearance at college
Question of the Day
What a horror! Stephen King, whose books have been sending chills up millions of people's spines for decades, will make a rare public appearance at a Massachusetts university later this year.
The author of "The Shining" and "Carrie," famous for its gruesome finale at a high school dance, will address students at the University of Massachusetts-Lowell on Dec. 7.
"Stephen King's words on page and screen have thrilled and chilled fans for three decades, but opportunities to hear those words spoken by the author himself are rare," the university said.
"For one night only, King will take to the stage ... offering fans the chance to hear King read his work, ask him questions and listen to him discuss his passion for writing and his advice for aspiring authors."
Mr. King and his wife, Tabitha, will endow a new scholarship fund in their names.
