Acclaimed fantasy author Neil Gaiman will kick off the Cleveland Public Library’s 2009-2010 Writers & Readers series Sunday, 2 p.m., at the Cleveland Public Library’s Lake Shore Facility (behind the Memorial-Nottingham Branch), 17109 Lake Shore Blvd. Gaimain wrote the Sandman graphic novels, the New York Times young-adult bestseller The Graveyard Book, and the novel that became the movie Coraline. Call 216.623.2800 for more information. All Writers & Readers events are free and open to the public. Seating is on a first-come, first-served basis. Gaiman books, including his new short young adult novel Odd and the Frost Giants, will be available for sale.
Click the pic for the trailer of Graveyard Book, which won a Newbery Medal and has been on the New York Times bestseller list for 51 weeks straight. Gaiman has said via his Twitter account (@neilhimself) that if it's there for a full year week, then everybody gets pie. This week's sales aren't in, but if you're going to cash in on the pie offer, this is probably your best chance. — D.X. Ferris
