Abstract

An article on well-known author Stephen King and his wife, author Tabitha King, native Mainers who live in Bangor and focus their low-profile philanthropy locally. Their many beneficiaries include Eastern Maine Medical Center, the Bangor and Old Town libraries, Bangor's new Shawn T. Mansfield Baseball Stadium, area swimming pools, and the University of Maine, where both attended college. They have bought a local radio station to preserve local high-school and college sports coverage. Though wealthy enough to live anywhere, and despite King's fame, they have chosen to raise their family in Bangor and live as regular members of the community. Headquarters for King's fans is Betts Bookstore on Main Street.
