Stephen Edwin King is perhaps the most successful and prolific writer of his generation. King and his wife, Tabitha, own a home on West Broadway in Bangor. Before he was a famous writer, he attended the University of Maine in Orono and taught English at Hampden Academy. It was while he was a teacher that he wrote "Carrie," which would propel his writing career. King has written more than 80 books including "Salem's Lot," "The Stand," "IT," "The Shining" and many more. Bangor residents have many stories of encountering King out in public, maybe at a convenience store, or a movie or just walking down the street. The Kings have been generous with the Queen City, funding major renovations to the Bangor Public Library and the Beth Pancoe Aquatic Center.
