Stephen King and John Grisham raise money for Democrat Jim Webb

On Sunday, September 24th, two best-selling authors were on stage at the Paramount Theater to raise money for Democratic Senatorial Candidate Jim Webb. Stephen King was invited by Albemarle County Resident John Grisham to speak to Democrats who paid a hefty fee to attend. CPN was there and now brings you an audio recording of the event for free. The master of ceremonies for the event is Governor Tim Kaine.

This podcast is a slightly edited version to reduce the file size. Applause length has been slightly trimmed, as well as some of Governor Kaine’s introductions at the beginning of the event. He also recognized the work of Delegate David Toscano and Senator Creigh Deeds.

The following is a rough run-down of when each speaker was at the microphone.

00:00 – 11:32 – Introduction from Governor Tim Kaine

11:32 – 43:51 – John Grisham

43:51 – 1:15:39 – Stephen King

1:15:40 – 1:34:43 – Jim Webb

  1. I’ve just listened for 1 1/2 hours of outstanding entertainment. Have you heard of any Republican events where three authors, one the candidate, read from their works? As a southwest Virginian I am proud that Webb became a Democrat in order to represent the common person. What an opportunity Mr. Webb is giving to Virginians! Let’s hope and pray they permit him to serve them.
