king_2012

Stephen King performed to a sold-out crowd after spending the day at UMass Lowell on Friday December 7th. 3,000 fans packed the Tsongas Center last week to see the literary icon.

King raised more than $100,000 for the Stephen and Tabitha King Scholarship Fund, which will benefit UMass Lowell’s English students. King donated his speaker’s fee to the cause.

The author discussed his career, motivations and for nearly 30 minutes, read a new, unpublished piece, “Afterlife.”

It was a rare college date for King, 65, who has sold 350 million copies of more than 50 novels.
