King accepts the award with grace and wit. His acceptance speech is filled with loving thanks to his wife Tabitha and with a passionate appreciation of his craft. King reflects on bridging the gap between literary and popular writers as well as staying true to his work and to himself over the many years. He concludes his speech by saluting all the nominees and with his sincerest hope that "you'll find something to read that will fill you up as this evening has filled me up".

Had a smile on my face during most of his talk. Stephen’s speech is less than thirty minutes. He talks of literary vs. popular writing. He also talks about his early years writing and his wife Tabitha.
