OH – An Evening with Neil Gaiman

Author Neil Gaiman appears at the KeyBank State Theatre on Friday, March 9, 2018 at 8:00 PM! Tickets available at the link…

“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.”

Gaiman is the #1 New York Times bestselling author of more than twenty books. Gaiman’s best-selling contemporary fantasy novel, American Gods, took the Hugo, Nebula, Bram Stoker, and Locus awards-as did his bestselling young adult story, Coraline. Another children’s novel, The Graveyard Book, is the only work to win both the Newbery (US) and Carnegie (UK) Medals – awarded by librarians for the most prestigious contribution to children’s literature. Gaiman’s groundbreaking Sandman comics, which has garnered a large number of accolades including nine Eisner Awards, was described by Stephen King as having turned graphic novels into “art.” Hailed by the Los Angeles Times as the greatest epic in the history of the form, an issue of Sandman was the first comic book to receive literary recognition, the World Fantasy Award for Best Short Story.

About Neil Gaiman

Neil Gaiman was born in the United Kingdom and now lives in the United States near Minneapolis. As a child he discovered his love of books, reading, and stories, devouring the works of C.S. Lewis, J.R.R. Tolkien, Edgar Allan Poe, Ursula K. LeGuin, and G.K. Chesterton. A self-described “feral child who was raised in libraries,” Gaiman credits librarians with fostering a life-long love of reading. He is a passionate advocate for books and libraries, and a supporter and former board member of the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund. Gaiman teaches at Bard College and is married to artist/musician Amanda Palmer, with whom he sometimes performs.

Gaiman’s bestselling contemporary fantasy novel, American Gods, took the Hugo, Nebula, Bram Stoker, and Locus awards—as did his bestselling young adult story Coraline. Another children’s novel, The Graveyard Book, is the only work to win both the Newbery (U.S.) and Carnegie (U.K.) medals — awarded by librarians for the most prestigious contribution to children’s literature.

Gaiman’s groundbreaking ‘Sandman’ comics has garnered a large number of accolades, including nine Eisner Awards, and an issue of ‘Sandman’ was the first comic book to receive literary recognition by winning the World Fantasy Award for Best Short Story.

Two of Gaiman’s speeches have gone viral. One of them, ‘Make Good Art’, an inspiring commencement address from 2012, received 1.5 million views (Vimeo and YouTube), and proved so popular it was released as a book illustrated and designed by Chip Kidd. His work Neverwhere was broadcast as a BBC radio adaptation starring Benedict Cumberbatch and, locally, is being presented as a play by the Know Theatre. And he scripted two Doctor Who episodes; ‘The Doctor’s Wife’ and ‘Nightmare in Silver’.

Gaiman’s best-selling contemporary fantasy novel American Gods, which won Hugo, Nebula, Bram Stoker, and Locus awards, was made into an American television series for STARZ. Good Omens, a book he co-authored with Terry Pratchett, will debut as a six part series on Amazon Prime in 2018. A four-part series, Neil Gaiman’s Likely Stories, based on Gaiman’s short stories, debuted on Sky network in the U.K. and will debut on the Shudder network in the U.S. in August 2018.

Altogether, Gaiman has received four Hugos, two Nebulas, a World Fantasy Award, four Bram Stoker Awards, six Locus Awards, two British SF Awards, a British Fantasy Award, three Geffens, an International Horror Guild Award, two Mythopoeic Awards, and 15 Eisner Awards. In 2017 the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees appointed Neil Gaiman as a global Goodwill Ambassador.

ON – Black Dog – The Dreams of Paul Nash Performance

The Toronto Comic Arts Festival (TCAF) and Seneca College are proud to present the incredible live performance of BLACK DOG: The Dreams of Paul Nash, by Dave McKean, as part of TCAF 2017. This special multimedia presentation will be performed by McKean, alongside Cellist and Baritone Matthew Sharp and Violinist Clare Haythornthwaite. Get tickets here…

Traveling to Canada after its performances in England after being commissioned by the Lakes International Comic Art Festival, Black Dog – The Dreams of Paul Nash is a multimedia performance and new graphic novel by illustrator, comic artist, filmmaker and musician Dave McKean. Part of 14-18 NOW, the UK’s arts programme for the First World War centenary, McKean explores the work of Paul Nash, one of the most important British artists of the twentieth century, whose First World War experiences inspired him to create paintings of disturbing, lasting power.

Doors will open at 8:30pm, with the performance scheduled to begin at 9:00pm. A short Q&A will follow, but there will be no signing at this event. Autograph opportunities will take place at the main Festival on Saturday May 13 and Sunday May 14, see TorontoComics.com for details.

I’d like to explore Paul Nash’s role in the birth of modernism and surrealism, and how those movements were actually witnessed by Nash in the dream-/nightmare-like battlefields of the war. He used the landscape that he loved to try to deal with what he’d been through, and to try and find calm and solace beyond.’ Dave McKean

This performance is presented by Seneca College, and by LICAF: The Lakes International Comic Art Festival, with special thanks to Dark Horse Comics.
