To do tonight; Gaiman and Levitz in conversation at Symphony Space

Another one we’d love to attend.

Author, graphic novelist, and screenwriter Neil Gaiman (Sandman, American Gods, Coraline, The Graveyard Book) has been described by the Dictionary of Literary Biography as “one of the top ten living post-modern writers.”  Join Paul Levitz, former publisher of DC Comics and lecturer at Columbia University’s Center for American Studies as he talks with Gaiman about his life and his writing.   

Presented by the Institute for Israel & Jewish Studies and the Center for American Studies, ColumbiaUniversity.


Seriously, you people need to start taking your iphones and recording this stuff, kamikaze style.
