Neil Gaiman is a ROCK STAR!

  I am going to make a conservative estimate here--500-600+ turned out to hear the author speak at Cleveland Public Library today.  What a great event.  He gave a nod to Cleveland's own Harlan Ellison and discussed the relevance of imagination to our culture. 

CPL Director Felton Thomas was generous to those of us relegated to the overflow room--we got a fleeting in person moment with the author.  It made my day!
