Stephen King reads excerpt of 'The Shining' sequel 'Dr. Sleep'

After paying a visit to George Mason University in D.C. last weekend, where he read an excerpt of the in-progress book, Stephen King officially announced he's working on Dr. Sleep, the sequel to The Shining. According to his site, the book's plot revolves around an adult Danny Torrance and "a traveling group of vampires called The Tribe."

Entertainment Weekly posted video of King reading from the sequel at Mason, which we've embedded below.
