What passes for bookishness in South Florida

A Ft. Lauderdale-area woman will pay $25,100 for the right to name a character in the next Stephen King novel, which “focuses on a set of rampaging zombies controlled by cell phones.” She beat out some guy from Nebraska, “who was poised to take out a credit line on his house to buy a way into King’s head.”

Proceeds benefit The First Amendment Project.
