Chancellor's Speaker Series


In the News

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 took to the stage at the Tsongas Center at UMass Lowell Dec. 7, 2012, offering fans the chance to hear King read his work. He also took questions, discussed his passion for writing and offered advice for aspiring authors. “A Conversation with Stephen King” was moderated by Andre Dubus III, best-selling author and professor in UMass Lowell’s English Department. King donated his fee from the appearance to help endow a new scholarship fund in his and his wife’s name.
