Horror writer and UMaine alumnus Stephen King and his wife Tabitha King, also a writer and a UMaine graduate, were mentioned in a BDN editorial about Halloween. The editorial noted that the Kings give generously to libraries around the state,
recreation groups and education efforts, notably to UMaine. The editorial made the link between the King’s donation and the story that the Kings meet through Tabitha King’s work-study job at UMaine’s Fogler Library.
