Book Event: Stephen King’s End of Watch Book Tour

If you follow my blog posts, you may remember that I had scored tickets to go see Stephen King!  You can read all about the stress and excitement of scoring these hard to get tickets here → Bookish Dreams Do Come True! Stephen King Book Tour.

This tour was to  promote his most recent book release, End of Watch, which is the 3rd and final installment in the Bill Hodges Trilogy.  You can read my reviews of Mr. Mercedes here → Book Review: Mr. Mercedes by Stephen King and Finders Keepers here → Book Review: Finders Keepers by Stephen King.

Last Thursday, June 9th,  finally came and went…I am still in disbelief that I got the chance to see Stephen King speak.  I mean who HASN’T read one of his 50+ novels or at the very least, heard of him?  This event was HUGE for our city… I think the last time Stephen King came to Dayton, Ohio was in the 1980’s?  Don’t quote me but I thought it was ’88?  Can I get a fact check on that one?  If that is indeed correct, it would have been almost 30 years since he was last here!
