Author Neil Gaiman Will Be Speaking In Dublin Next Weekend

Bookworms of Dublin, have we got news for you: Neil Gaiman is set to speak before a live audience in Dublin next week.

Hosted by Patrick Freyne, An Evening With Neil Gaiman is just one of the events taking place at the International Literature Festival Dublin, running from May 19-27, which will also include talks by Roddy Doyle, David Mitchell, Ruby Wax, Gaiman's wife Amanda Palmer and many others.

Now for non-fans the name Neil Gaiman might not ring a bell, but we guarantee you've come across his work in the past. 

The English author made a name for himself in his early career by writing surprisingly literary comic books, before going on to craft novels, short stories, audio theatre and film scripts. Several of his works have been adapted to TV and films, such as Stardust, Coraline, American Gods and, most recently, How To Talk To Girls At Parties.

And his inspirational commencement speech at University Of The Arts in Philadelphia went viral back in 2012.

On Sunday, May 27 at the Convention Centre Dublin, Gaiman is set to take about his colourful career and the art of storytelling.

Know anyone who'd be interested in attending? Tickets for An Evening With Neil Gaiman are €25 and you can pick them up HERE.
