Stephen King speaks at closing of Savannah Book Festival

Nothing could hold back fans of best-selling author, Stephen King, as a long line of fans formed early Sunday morning to hear the horror icon talk about his career.

From the entrance of the Trustee's Theater, wrapping all the way down Broughton Street to the Melting Pot and around the corner. Four hundred people were anxious to be in the group who would get their Stephen King novel signed.

Some had their books in one hand, and their ticket to hear king speak in the other hand.

It was a once in a lifetime experience for many; Michael Littlefield says, "he's just a classic. I've read, if not everything he's written, darn close to everything he's written. My favorites include the stand and the dark tower series. Again, a classic."

Fans were finally able to see and hear the world-renowned, award-winning author speak at the closing ceremony for the Savannah Book Festival.

King talked about his newest novel, "11-22-63," a book about a time traveler who attempts to prevent the assassination of John F. Kennedy.

He also announced he's writing a sequal to his 1977 horror novel, "The Shining," and read the first chapter to attendees.
