Neil Gaiman talk at Cooper Union this weekend

As part of the PEN World Voices Festival of International Literature’s Afternoon with International Graphic Novelists, Neil Gaiman will be giving a talk this weekend at Cooper Union. The talk will focus on the work he has done with graphic novels, including Coraline, which was recently adapted into a movie (an awesome movie, I might add).

As someone who enjoyed Gaiman’s Sandman comics/graphic novels so much that I got a tattoo of one of his characters, I’m bummed that I’ll have to miss this. Everyone I know who has attended his talks has enjoyed them immensely.

The talk is Saturday, May 2, at 1 PM at the Great Hall at Cooper Union, 7 E. 7th Street. Tickets are available for $10, or you can get tickets for all three graphic novelist talks for a discounted rate of $25. You can’t buy them online anymore, but tickets are still available by calling 212.868.4444.

Neil Gaiman has given several other talks this week – anyone who attended, please let us know what you thought!

    I can’t recommend seeing Neil speak enough! I saw him last night, he chatted with a couple of other authors about the evolution of children’s books. He’s incredibly funny, and if he hadn’t been in such a rush he would have sat and signed books for people.

    *He signed some in advance, though, so I got my copy of Coraline and The Graveyard Book signed!
