Event Description

"I make things up and write them down" is the way Neil Gaiman describes his varied art. Today, as one of the most celebrated, bestselling writers of our time, his popular and critically acclaimed works bend genres while reaching audiences of all ages. In his live event, “An Evening with Neil Gaiman” he will tell stories and read stories, answer questions, and in his own words “amaze, befuddle and generally delight. It will be fun and odd and not like any other evening with Neil Gaiman.” "He’s heaped with sci-fi and horror prizes – the Hugo, the Nebula, the Bram Stoker – but also with children’s prizes, the Newbery and more. He’s a literary rock star who also takes the stage – and mines our deep, dark veins." -NPR's On Point With Tom Ashbrook Gaiman will be interviewed on stage by Paul Holdengräber, Director of New York Public Library’s Public Programming and frequent interviewer of authors and artists. Holdengräber will interview Gaiman about his extensive writing career, his creative process, and more. There will also be an opportunity for questions from the audience. Presented in Partnership with the Connecticut Forum
