Last week Stephen King received a Lifetime Achievement Award from the Audio Publishers Association in recognition for his achievements in the audiobook industry at the 2020 Audie Awards. In his acceptance speech, King said of audiobooks: “I listen to my own books – the reason why is because you can hear everything you did right and everything you did wrong. This is the most honorable form of storytelling there is.” And there was even more reason to rejoice – the audiobook edition of THE INSTITUTE read by recent Tony Award-winning actor Santino Fontana (Tootsie) took home the award in the Thriller/Mystery category. 

Check out a video tribute from just a few of the talented narrators who have given voice to Stephen King’s work over the years.

Bangor Archives and Retreat

Posted: October 18th, 2019 4:46:12 pm

There's been a lot of recent press — and some misinformation — about what's going on with the house at 47 West Broadway in Bangor.

We are in the very beginning of planning the writers' retreat at the house next door,  providing housing for up to five writers in residence at a time. The zoning change getting press coverage was the first step. We are 1 to 2 years away from an operating retreat.  

The archives formerly held at the University of Maine will be accessible for restricted visits by appointment only. There will not be a museum and nothing will be open to the public, but the archives will be available to researchers and scholars.
