Neil Gaiman lecture @ UCLA

Thursday, February 4th, 2010

Start Time: 08:00PM    End Time: 10:00PM

After years as the most famous writer you’d never heard of, Neil Gaiman’s recent Hollywood successes have propelled him into celebrity orbit. After co-writing the films “Beowulf” and “Stardust,” the animated version of his novella, “Coraline,” was released in 2009 to unanimous rave reviews. But Gaiman has been a prominent and prolific creator of comics, novels, film, journalism and poetry for more than two decades. He created the best-selling DC Comics series “Sandman,” which was the first comic ever to receive a major literary award. “The Graveyard Book,” published in 2008, received the Newbery Medal, the top prize for children’s literature. At the podium, Gaiman shares stories of imagination and urges audiences to take note of the creative ideas that linger in each of us.
