National Library Week is April 11-17, and this year's honorary chair is author Neil Gaiman, recent winner of the Newbery Medal for The Graveyard Book. Not only is Neil Gaiman a gifted storyteller, he's also a great advocate for America's libraries. He's a frequent blogger (journal.neilgaiman.com) and very active on Twitter (twitter.com/neilhimself). He also has a web site targeting younger readers, www.mousecircus.com. See our catalog for Neil's works like Coraline, Neverwhere, Anansi Boys, and many more.

Check out this great interview at home with Neil Gaiman. Did you know Neil Gaiman's first book was a biography of the 80's band Duran Duran?!
