Stephen King Book Club @Drink Me! Tea Room – The Outsider 5/23

May 23 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Stephen King Book Club @ Drink Me! Tea Room

Welcome to our new Stephen King Book Club hosted by our favorite fiction professor and Stephen King Podcaster Kim C., host of The Year of Underrated Stephen King.

For the first half of the year we will be reading the series of books that follow Stephen King’s favorite recurring character, Holly Gibney. We will read and discuss the 5 stories that feature Holly on the journey to her very own novel. The full list of titles and dates are listed below.

The Outsider will continue our journey with King’s favorite recurring character, Holly Gibney.

Holly returns to help her friend Bill Hodges and tackle one of her hardest cases to date. An eleven-year-old boy’s violated corpse is found in a town park. Eyewitnesses and fingerprints point unmistakably to one of Flint City’s most popular citizens. He is Terry Maitland, Little League coach, English teacher, husband, and father of two girls.

Detective Ralph Anderson orders a quick and very public arrest. Maitland has an alibi, but Anderson and the district attorney soon add DNA evidence to go with the fingerprints and witnesses. Their case seems ironclad.  

As the investigation expands and horrifying answers begin to emerge, Detective Anderson has to trust Holly’s unique perspective in order for the truth to be found.
