A year ago, I wrote the following on MinnesotaReads:
If your favorite author came to Minnesota, who would it be and what bar would you take him/her to?
If Stephen King came to Minnesota, after I picked myself up off of the floor and reassembled myself into a solid, I would bring him to Stella’s Fish Cafe in Minneapolis. Good food (though he’d probably scorn our “fresh” lobster) and a great view of the skyline. King is, of course, familiar with the Twin Cities, so he may have his own ideas on where he’d like to go!
Jodi has just informed me that my hero, my inspiration, and someone I'm sure I could never actually meet because I would have a stroke, anurysm, heart attack, complete freakout and die before I could shake his hand IS COMING TO MINNESOTA.
I'm dying. Surely this is me, dying.
