Stephen King (and Tobias Wolff) to Receive National Medal of Arts!


Stephen King, the Man His Own Self, is receiving -- according the Wikipedia entry on "National Medal of Arts" -- the highest honor bestowed upon artists from the people. (As if all of us throwing our money at King in unison isn't enough!)

Stephen King and Tobias Wolff 

Quite frankly, I didn't even know this award existed to be won. But I'm super-happy that King is being recognized so prestigiously. Previous (writing) winners include: John Updike, Phillip Roth, Maya Angelou, Rudolfo Anaya, and Harper Lee.
