Author of more than 20 books, Neil Gaiman has had a remarkable career. His bestselling contemporary fantasy novels such as Coraline
and American Gods
have won countless awards. His children’s novel, The Graveyard Book
, is the only work to win both the Newbery and Carnegie medals. Gaiman’s Sandman comics, which Stephen King has said “turned graphic novels into art,” earned a number of accolades, including nine Eisner Awards.
Next year, Gaiman will make his first-ever appearance at the State Theatre
. He’ll speak at the venue at 8 p.m. on March 9.
For the event, dubbed An Evening with Neil Gaiman, the author will tell and read stories, answer questions and, “amaze, befuddle and generally delight,” as he puts it.
Tickets go on sale at 11 a.m .on Friday.
