Author Neil Gaiman will visit WKU on Oct. 6 as part of the 2015-2016 Cultural Enhancement Series.

After the success of Sam Bush and Nina Totenberg, the 2015-2016 Cultural Enhancement Series continues with a visit from best-selling author Neil Gaiman on Oct. 6.

Beginning at 7:30 p.m. CT in WKU’s Van Meter Hall, Gaiman will be interviewed by WKU English professor and author David Bell.

A brief Q&A session will follow the interview. Question cards will be provided in the lobby prior to the event to allow patrons to submit their questions for Gaiman.

Additionally, there will not be an official book signing at this event. However, pre-signed books will be available for purchase from the onsite Barnes & Noble vendor.

Gaiman is among the most notable authors of the 21st century, and his work has taken him to a variety of platforms: adult and children’s novels, comic books, TV shows, and beyond. Some of his most notable works, such as Coraline and Stardust, have been transformed on the silver screen, while his novels and short stories have also received numerous awards. His novel American Gods received the Hugo, Bram Stoker, Nebula and Locus awards, as did the children’s novel, Coraline. He has also penned episodes of Doctor Who and Babylon 5. 

The presentation will begin promptly at 7:30 p.m. CT in Van Meter Hall. There are no tickets required for this free event; however, seats will be given on a first-come, first-serve basis. This event is also swipeable for all WKU students.

The presentation also will be live-streamed to WKU regional campuses in Elizabethtown (room 117) and Owensboro (room 208).
