Stephen King (via octaviabooks.com)

In the rear of the store at Octavia Books is a little corner where literary figures make near-daily appearances, but a bit more space is going to be needed for the latest author they’ll be hosting: Stephen King.

King, whose dozens of novels have sold millions of copies around the world, will be presenting his latest novel, “11/22/63,” on Nov. 12 in the fine arts center at the Academy of the Sacred Heart. The book is a cross between historical fiction about the Kennedy assassination and a time-traveling fantasy, a story about an English teacher who travels back to 1958 on a mission to prevent President Kennedy from being killed.

Tickets are $35 and include a copy of the novel, and Octavia suggests you don’t wait around.

“We strongly recommend that you pre-purchase now,” the Uptown bookseller’s website reads.

Doors open at 6:30 p.m. Nov. 12 at the Nims Fine Arts Center, 4301 St. Charles Avenue (at Napoleon Avenue).
