Description

EPL in partnership with the Edmonton Community Foundation and the University of Alberta Libraries are excited to present award-winning and best-selling author Neil Gaiman as part of the Forward Thinking Speaker Series on Tuesday, November 13th at the Shaw Conference Centre.

The #1 New York Times bestselling author of more than 20 books, Neil Gaiman is known for works such as contemporary fantasy novel American Gods, young adults’ story Coraline and children’s novel The Graveyard Book. His Sandman comics have been called groundbreaking, and he is known as a creator of not only fiction and comics, but also of screenplays, song lyrics, poetry, journalism and multimedia works. A self-described “feral child who was raised in libraries”, Gaiman describes his varied art as: “I make things up and write them down”.

EPL cardholders have two ticket options:

  • General Admission: $20 (seats in white section on seating map)
  • Preferred Seating: $40 (seats in yellow section on seating map)

All seats are first come, first served within all sections. Doors open at 5:30pm, please arrive early for best seats.

Tickets will be available at 10 a.m. on Wednesday, September 12 for EPL Cardholders.

All ticket proceeds support the Stanley A. Milner Library revitalization project.

The Forward Thinking Speaker Series reflects EPL’s rich history of taking risks, trying new things out and redefining the modern library. EPL is inviting thought-leaders from a variety of industries and around a variety of topics to share their insights, ideas, experiences and viewpoints, with the goal of helping us purposefully build better organizations, neighborhoods and communities.
