If you could go back in time and change the past, what would you change? Stephen King ponders that question in his latest novel “11/22/63.”

Author Stephen King recently released his new book, “11/22/63.”

The title contains the date of when the country was shaken. The date marks the day when three shots in Dallas changed the country and world forever.

King introduces a character named Jake Epping, an English teacher who makes a little bit of extra money by teaching GED classes. Epping gives his students a writing assignments where they have to explain how something has changed their lives. The teacher is taken aback when one of his students writes about the night  he had witnessed his own father kill his mother and siblings. Not knowing how to take the story of his student, Epping seeks the help of his friend, Al Templeton.

While sitting in the diner owned by Templeton, he reveals a secret to Epping. In his store room in the basement, Templeton discovered a time portal that takes him back to 1958. Epping learns and accepts a mission that becomes Templeton’s obsession and dying wish, to prevent the Kennedy assassination.

Kings’ new book, 11/22/63, is his first new release since “Under the Dome,” which came out in 2009.“ The story idea for “11/22/63”  isn’t a recent one for Stephen King. King had originally planned to publish the story in 1973 but decided against it, because Kennedy’s assassination was still fresh on Americans’ minds.

“11/22/63” explores the idea of time travel, having the power to change the past, but forgetting how it in turn, could affect the future.
