Stephen King’s home 👻 will become a museum and writers’ retreat


Today in “Stephen King is a good literary citizen” news: the writer’s home in Bangor, ME (the AKA the real-life Derry, where the sewers are perfectly normal thank you very much) will soon house an archive of his work and a writers’ retreat. According to Rolling Stone, “the Bangor City Council unanimously approved a request by King and his wife Tabitha to rezone their home as a non-profit.”

Access to the archive will be available by appointment, and up to five writers at a time will be able to stay in the house. Unfortunately, it doesn’t appear that the retreat will be up and running by Halloween, but there’s always next year!
