Abstract/ Summary

What happens when "IT" comes to the classroom, or tries to and finds the door barred? Such are the questions that will be posed, discussed and debated at the Oct. 11-12 [1996] Reading Stephen King conference at the University of Maine. The work of the prolific best-selling horror writer will be the catalyst for a diversity of perspectives and experiences examining issues of censorship, student choice and the place of popular literature in the required readings or "canons" of public high schools and colleges.
