Neil Gaiman @ MIT Tonight

5/23/2008 10:53:00 AM
If you haven't heard of Neil Gaiman, you've probably heard of or seen his work. He's probably one of the most prolific and best comic book writers around. He also writes books and has worked on a few movies.

Well he's going to be at MIT tonight hosted by the Comparative Media Studies department:

The Julius Schwartz Lecture is an annual event held to honor an individual who has made significant contributions to the culture, creativity and community of comics and popular entertainment. The inaugural lecture will be held on May 23rd, 2008 at 7 PM in Kresge Auditorium at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

The event is typically structured as a short lecture presented by the honored speaker, followed by a question-and-answer discussion between the speaker and the head of the Comparative Media Studies program, media scholar Henry Jenkins III. This will be followed by an open question-and-answer session between the lecturer and the audience. The inaugural speaker for the series is New York Times bestselling author Neil Gaiman.


Unfortunately, I found out about this event too late and the lecture is sold out. But maybe there will be some folks at the event scalping tickets for those of you that are interested.
