Feel Good Friday: Eerie Inspiration with Stephen King

A group of promising elementary school students will soon publish the first book with some help from Maine’s most famous writer, Stephen King. King views this as helping these children cope with COVID through the art of writing. His foundation, along with number of groups from the Lewiston, Maine area, have sent donations that will be used for the Author Studies program to cover the $6,500 cost of publishing a 290-page book written by students participating in Farwell Elementary School’s Author Studies Program. This manuscript started with a story written by the elementary students entitled “Fletcher McKenzie and the Passage to Whole,” which reflects experiences of the students during the pandemic.
