As part of the Althea Ward Clark W’21 Reading Series, bestselling author Stephen King and writer Eileen Myles read from their work on Wednesday, November 16, at 4:30 p.m. in the Berlind Theatre at McCarter Theatre Center. The event is free, however tickets are required. Tickets will be available to the public beginning October 28th — more details will be posted at their site on that date.
Please note that King will not sign books following the reading, however presigned books (mixed titles) will be available for purchase.
No word on what King will read but it'll probably be from Hearts in Suspension.
The BBC are adapting King's story Cookie Jar into a three part radio presentation for their Book at Bedtime slot on Radio 4. It is part of a season of Halloween themed stories called Friday Night Shorts which also includes The Rat King by John Connolly and The Mirror by Kate Mosse. The series kicks off with Cookie Jar at 22.45 (BST) on October 24th.
“If I were ever to write a children’s book, it would be just like this!”

From the press release for Charlie The Choo Choo.
Charlie the Choo-Choo:
From the world of The Dark Tower
Written by Beryl Evans
Illustrated by Ned Dameron *As seen in the Dark Tower film, releasing in February 2017.*
Engineer Bob has a secret: His train engine, Charlie the Choo-Choo, is alive…and also his best friend. From celebrated author Beryl Evans (a pseudonym for Stephen King) and illustrator Ned Dameron comes a story about friendship, loyalty, and hard work.
Fans of Stephen King’s acclaimed Dark Tower series will recognize Charlie the Choo-Choo as the picture book that shows up in Book Three, The Waste Lands, written by the character Beryl Evans. An Easter egg for devoted fans, a mock-up of the book was recently distributed at San Diego Comic Con, where over 500 fans gathered to claim one of 150 copies available. Now in its completion, fans across the country can bring Charlie the Choo-Choo to their home libraries.
