SPIN presents Amanda Palmer and Neil Gaiman

This is why I sometimes wish I lived in NY! Housing Works Bookstore Cafe is hosting an event June 3 with two of my favorite artists: Amanda Palmer and Neil Gaiman. Neil Gaiman is of course the creator of such works as Fragile Things, Anansi Boys, Coraline, and MirrorMask. To date he has won: 3 Hugos, 2 Nebulas, 1 World Fantasy Award, 4 Bram Stoker Awards, 6 Locus Awards, 2 British SF Awards, 1 British Fantasy Award, 3 Geffens, 1 International Horror Guild Award and 1 Mythopoeic. Amanda Palmer is the lead singer and keyboardist for the punk cabaret band The Dresden Dolls. In 2008 she released her first solo album, Who Killed Amanda Palmer, which was produced by Ben Folds. The event is to promote the upcoming release of Palmer's photo book Who Killed Amanda Palmer, with text by Gaiman and photos by Kyle Cassidy & Co. More about the book can be found here.This event is unfortunately sold out (even the tables they auctioned off for charity). Hopefully someone here at the Met is going and will report back to us (pics please).
