Stephen King is helping children publish a book inspired by the pandemic

A group of young authors publish a book with the help of one of the most famous writers in the state of Maine.

The Stephen King Foundation bears $ 6,500 of the cost of printing a 290-page manuscript of students who participated in the Farwell School’s copyright program, the Associated Press reported.

The children developed their own versions of the story “Fletcher McKenzie and the Passage to Whole” about a boy from Maine by Gary Savage, in which they reflect their experiences and thoughts during the pandemic of the new coronavirus.

School principal Amanda Winslow said she was proud of the students’ achievements and thanked Savage, who also guided participants to librarian Kathy Martin.

Local organizations have donated to the school’s creative writing program.
