A Conversation With Stephen King
The Inaugural Event of the Chancellor’s Speaker Series
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. For one night only, King will take to the stage at the Tsongas Center at UMass Lowell, offering fans the chance to hear King read his work. He will also take questions, discuss his passion for writing and offer advice for aspiring authors. “A Conversation with Stephen King” will be moderated by Andre Dubus III, best-selling author and professor in UMass Lowell’s English Department. King will donate his fee from the appearance to help endow a new scholarship fund in his and his wife’s name.
Friday, Dec. 7
Tsongas Center at UMass Lowell
300 Martin Luther King Way, Lowell, MA
