Neil Gaiman speaks at the Music Hall in Portsmouth, NH on Wednesday June 22, 2011 at 7:30 pm.
The Music Hall and New Hampshire Public Radio present: “One of the top ten living post-modern writers” (Dictionary of Literary Biography) takes the stage to discuss the tenth anniversary edition of American Gods, his classic work which was a New York Times bestseller in 2001 and awarded the Hugo, Nebula, Bram Stoker, SFX, and Locus awards.
Gaiman is a prolific creator of works of prose, poetry, film, journalism, comics, song lyrics, and drama. His children’s novel Coraline, published in 2002, was also a New York Times and international bestseller and an enormous critical success; it won the Elizabeth Burr/ Worzalla, the BSFA, the Hugo, the Nebula, and the Bram Stoker awards. Director Henry Selick made the film “Coraline,” with music provided by the band They Might Be Giants.
The literary evening features an author presentation followed by an onstage interview with Virginia Prescott, host of New Hampshire Public Radio’s “Word of Mouth.” Live music performed by the award-winning house band Dreadnaught. Rebroadcast on NHPR.
