Stephen King to appear at electric car event

Best-selling novelist Stephen King is a big fan of electric cars (although we assume not ones named Christine) and is the owner of a Chevy Volt that he likes to say is great revenge on the oil cartel. As a part-time resident of Sarasota's Casey Key, the often reclusive King is scheduled to join in a panel discussion Thursday after the film Revenge of the Electric Car. From the director of the documentary Who Killed the Electric Car?, the film delights in how auto companies are now racing to produce electric cars. The showing is at 6:30 p.m. on Thursday at Burns Court Cinema, 506 Burns Lane, Sarasota. After the film, a discussion and audience question-and-answer session will be held with local government leaders and the King of Horror. Tickets can be purchased online at the Sarasota Film Society website,
