Willa, a new story

Posted: January 22, 2006, 21:54:35

Yesterday King appeared on the An Evening With Stephen King! King read a brand new short story to test it on the crowd, the story was called Willa and King said it was about 7500 words.

Dennis Lehane introduced King and then fielded questions pre-filled out by the crowd for Stephen King. It went from 8pm to about 9:30pm, for a very receptive crowd... people of ALL ages. King made a brief comment about the crowd being asked to turn off their cell phones and launched into a very funny and thorough story about how he came up with the idea for the novel and promoted it's release several times throughout the night.

If anyone took any photos from the event, please let me know.

Thanks to Ed Yarb and Judith.
