Dude…Stephen King Was At Our Local Walmart!

I am not joking!
See!

Stephen King really was in our local Walmart. The legendary author, of such amazing books as “Misery”, “It” and “The Green Mile”, was in town a few weeks ago for a signing of his new novel, “11/22/63”.

DH was one of hundreds of people to line up outside the store for the chance, to stand in line again later that evening, for an autograph. Mr. King would only be signing copies of “11/22/63”, and the store was limiting autographs to the first 400 people. DH excitedly called me with news he received wrist band number 344, which was shocking to him, because apparently, there were a ton of superfans sleeping in tents outside the store when he arrived!

Againnot joking!

You can see more details here on Stephen King’s FB page here or from Katie VanBrackle’s article here on NorthFulton.com. Ms. VanBrackle also shares some great pictures of the event.

Who would you stand in line for hours to see or get an autograph?

    That is actually really cool. Awesome that your DH got to get his autograph. You know I’m a writer, right? Yeah… I’d love to meet him in person. However, he is not actually at the top of my list nor is he in the top 5. I’d love to meet Paula Deen in person. I think at the moment she’s my #1. Actually anyone I love and adore I’d maybe wait in a line for, but Paula Deen – that I would be #344 for! Don’t ask me why – I just have an affection for Southern Food and her adorable personality. πŸ˜‰

    Did you go with him?

      I do know that…and yes, I did go with him. I left work to go meet him with the kids, so I could take them home due to timing. I stayed long enough to snap the pic on my phone. Silly me forgot the actual camera!!! UGH!

      I’d def wait in line for Paula Deen and Alton Brown. I was so bummed Alton Brown just had a signing around me and I missed it. I keep hoping to see him in the local Harry’s that is always on his show. πŸ™‚
