    Sunday night, best-selling author Stephen King made his first stop in the city of Louisville in his massive career that spans over four decades. The event, hosted by Carmichael’s Bookstore, was an engaging experience, an illuminating glimpse at the writer’s persona.

    The event was opened by Mayor Greg Fischer, who made a statement on the attacks in Orlando. He was followed by one of Carmicheal’s founders, Carol Besse, who presented King with his own engraved Louisville Slugger baseball bat.

    King spoke for about an hour and a half, including a story about a tour stop in Lexington with the author-composed rock band, The Rock Bottom Remainders in the ‘90s. He also talked about his work on films in the ‘80s, his methods for writing, and various humorous encounters throughout his life. The event concluded with a distribution of his latest book “End of Watch” and a showing of the film “Stand by Me” which is based on King’s novella, “The Body.”

    “End of Watch” can be purchased at Carmichael’s bookstore.
