I was at a Minnesota Public Radio “Talking Volumes” event last night with Stephen King and Audrey Niffenegger, the author of “The Time Traveler’s Wife.”
The event focused almost entirely on Stephen King.
Apparently Niffeneger was to be the star of the evening, but her second book – that came out this past fall – has not done overly well with consumers or critics and Stephen King was added to that event in order to assure a packed house. He had his new book “Under the Dome” to promote anyway. Predictably, he dominated the conversation and questions that were asked. Audrey Niffenegger did chime in from time to time though.
Of note: Niffenegger made an odd choice to do a reading from near the end of her new book and ended up apparently spoiling a number of twists when introducing the reading.
