A small group of Sussex high school students got the writing critique of a lifetime Friday morning when Stephen King made a surprise visit to their school.
King, the renowned author of books such as “The Stand,” “The Shining,” “The Dark Tower” series, “The Green Mile” and “11/22/63,” gathered with 18 lucky students in the school’s library to provide feedback on their work.
King then spoke to about 80 other students in the auditorium where he told them about his short time as a high school teacher and about how he dreams up the ideas for his novels.
Mr. King’s visit came after a yearlong campaign to get the author to visit the school by Halloween 2012.
