Stephen King's “End of Watch” tour will make a stop June 8 at Sewickley Academy in Edgeworth with tickets going on sale April 17.

Ticketing details were announced last week by Penguin Bookshop, which is hosting the event.

The best-selling author will read an excerpt from “End of Watch,” talk to the audience and offer a question-and-answer session during the one-hour event at the private Edgeworth school's Rea Auditorium. Doors open at 6 p.m. and the event is expected to begin at 7.

Tickets are $38 for general seating and $50 for the Friends of the Penguin priority seating area. A limited number of priority seating tickets will be available.

Both ticket prices offer entry to the event and a hardcover edition of “End of Watch.” A limited number of attendees randomly will receive signed copies.

Each person is allowed to purchase a maximum of two tickets.

Tickets can be purchased only in person on April 17, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., and April 18, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. at Penguin Bookshop, 417 Beaver St., Sewickley.

If tickets remain, they will be sold by phone beginning at 10 a.m. April 19.

No tickets will be sold online. No phone orders will be taken April 17 or April 18.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
