By Popular Demand, 'Night With Neil Gaiman' Moves to Larger Venue at Washington College

Chestertown, MD — As part of its "Pictures + Words: The New Literature of Graphic Narrative" festival, Washington College's Rose O'Neill Literary House had scheduled "A Night With Neil Gaiman," a lecture by the international superstar of fantasy and graphic narrative, to be held at the Prince Theatre on Monday, April 27, at 7:30 p.m. Advance interest in the event has been so strong that all seating reservations quickly filled.

Solution? A bigger venue.

Due to the number of requests that are still coming in for tickets, "A Night With Neil Gaiman" is being moved to Washington College's Cain Gymnasium. The location has changed, but date and time have remained the same: Monday, April 27, 7:30 p.m.

For those who already are ticket holders, the ticket now guarantees a seat in the first few rows, which will be reserved for ticket holders only. For those who do not have a ticket, there is now seating for 900 to 1,000 people, but the remaining seats will be available on a first-come, first-served basis.

Bestselling author Neil Gaiman has long been one of the top writers in modern comics, as well as writing books for readers of all ages. He is listed in the Dictionary of Literary Biography as one of the top 10 living post-modern writers, and is a prolific creator of works of prose, poetry, film, journalism, comics, song lyrics and drama.

Gaiman is the winner of three Hugo Awards, two Nebula Awards, a World Fantasy Award, four Bram Stoker Awards, nine Locus Awards, a British Fantasy Award, two British SF Awards, four Geffens, an International Horror Guild Award and two Mythopoeic Awards.
