On Writing: A Memoir of the Craft by Stephen King

From 6.30 pm until 7.30 pm

When the name Stephen King comes up, few readers probably think first of his memoir. On Writing offers a way into King's craft to readers who are reluctant to pick up horror or mystery. Ever since his first published novel in 1974, King has ranked among the most prolific American writers and cultural commentators. You would be hard pressed to find  someone in the US—let alone the state of Maine—who isn't aware of Stephen King.

So, whether you're an obsessed fan or a lukewarm observer, give his memoir a shot and join our discussion. Invite a friend, and remember: all readers welcome! 

Summary from the back cover:

"Long live the King," hailed Entertainment Weekly upon the publication of Stephen King's On Writing. Part memoir, part master class by one of the bestselling authors of all time, this superb volume is a revealing and practical view of the writer's craft, comprising the basic tools of the trade every writer must have. King's advice is grounded in his vivid memories from childhood through his emergence as a writer, from his struggling early career to his widely reported near-fatal accident in 1999—and how the inextricable link between writing and living spurred his recovery. Brilliantly structured, friendly and inspiring, On Writing will empower and entertain everyone who reads it—fans, writers, and anyone who loves a great story well told.
