A Newbery for Gaiman
“The Graveyard Book” just won a Newbery Medal. Check it out here: http://journal.neilgaiman.com/2009/01/what-i-look-like-day-after-i-win.html. And WAY back here: http://evilchickenscratch.blogspot.com/2008/10/neil-gaiman-in-philadelphia.html, will give you some background on Neil Gaiman, “The Graveyard Book” and our adventures going to Philly to hear him read us chapter three of the exploits of young Nobody Owens.
Cheers, Mr. Gaiman. I can’t wait to read and see (hopefully) what he does with adapting his book, “Anansi Boys” into a screenplay. Warner’s has first crack at it. I hope they do it right. It’s a great story that will make you root for Spider and Fat Charlie Nancy.
Nicely done, Mr. Gaiman. Nicely done.
