Lowell Lecture: Neil Gaiman

TUE, APR 4, 2017

New York Times bestselling author of more than twenty books, Neil Gaiman bends genres while reaching audiences of all ages. His works for adults include American Gods, Neverwhere, Anansi Boys, and The Ocean at the End of the Lane, which was voted Book of the Year in the British National Book Awards. His children’s novel The Graveyard Book is the only work to win both the Newbery (US) and Carnegie (UK) Medals, both awarded by librarians for the most prestigious contribution to children’s literature.

Gaiman will be interviewed on stage by Jared Bowen, Executive Arts Editor for WGBH and host of the weekly television series Open Studio with Jared Bowen, which takes viewers inside the creative process, offering a blend of profiles, performances, and contemporary exhibitions by artists in Greater Boston, New England, and across the country. Bowen will talk to Gaiman about his extensive career, his creative process, and his love of libraries.
