And, as always, libation goes down better with food, music, and art. Goes without saysing this is a 21 and over kind of event!
• Neil Gaiman at Eccles Theatre
Gaiman’s bestselling contemporary fantasy novel, American Gods, took the Hugo, Nebula, Bram Stoker, and Locus awards—as did his bestselling young adult story, Coraline.
