Stephen King te skenk $  6,500 aan basiese studente in Maine, sodat hulle hul eie boeke kan publiseer

Author Stephen King is giving back, deur duisende dollars aan 'n laerskool in sy tuisland Maine te skenk, sodat 'n groep studente hul eie boeke kan publiseer.

King sal skenk $ 6,500 to Farwell Elementary School, located in Lewiston, Maine, so the students in its Author Studies Program can publish the two books they’ve written, Farwell Principal Amanda Winslow told CNN.
As 'n groep, the studentssome of whom have graduated and are now in middle schoolhave been working on the books over the course of four yearsmapping out the character development, plot, and overall storyline with the help of another Maine author, Winslow said. The end result is two booksan original and a sequeland a 290-page manuscript.
Nou, the books are ready for publication, and with the help of King’s donation, they’ll be sent to a publishing company and available for purchase.
    CNN reached out to representatives for King for comment but did not hear back.
    “Dit was, soos, mind-blowing,” said seventh-grader Ella Leo to CNN affiliate WMTW.
    And the books are, gedeeltelik, based on the Covid-19 pandemic. The sequel novel is reworked from G. R. Savage’sFletcher McKenzie and the Passage to Whole,” to be made about a boy’s adventures during the pandemic, WMTW reported.
    I’ve been in it for the last four years, and only the people in my school have ever gotten to read what I’ve written, and it’s really cool to think that (nou) pretty much anyone can read anything you write,” fifth-grader Hailey LaBrecque told WMTW.
    Winslow told CNN she’s proud of the students and what they’ve accomplished.
      I think it’s hard for kids to really understand the lesson of perseverance and patience, but they’ve been working on this bookand they’re definitely starting to reap the rewards of their hard work,” sy het gese.
      King is the author of many acclaimed horror and thriller books, insluitend “Dit” en “The Shining.
