Here at BookPage we’ve been eager to read Stephen King’s 11/22/63 for a while — and now, less than a month before the book’s publication, word is out about the NEXT King opus to look forward to: a sequel to 1977′s The Shining. Open Culture posted footage from a reading from Dr. Sleep that King did at George Mason University last week. Check out King’s explanation of why he’s “always wondered about that kid Danny Torrance. . . . Where did he go after that horrific experience?” below, and click through for the reading from the book.
King’s website says, “It’s now official–Stephen is working on Dr. Sleep, the sequel to The Shining. . . . Dr. Sleep‘s plot includes a traveling group of vampires called The Tribe which is part of the passage he read from.”
