It appears Stephen king may be headed to Europe sometime this year for a book signing tour – and more specifically, France and Germany. A forum moderator on King’s official website has recently reported,
“I’ve heard back from Steve, who’s given me the okay to pass along the information he’d shared last week when I’d asked about book tours. He told me he will be going to France (and probably Germany) for a book tour so it’s not a matter of “if,” but rather a matter of “when.” I’ll post updates as they become available.”
As to what book? Well, his next novel – 11/22/63 – about a man who travels back in time to prevent the JFK assassination, is due to be released on November 8th of this year… so right now I would say it’s the prime suspect behind the reason for this possible tour. Stay tuned to Book Signing Central by signing up for our Email Newsletter and we’ll keep you posted as more of the details unfold.
