gaiman levitz To do tonight; Gaiman and Levitz in conversation at Symphony Space
Another one we’d love to attend.

Author, graphic novelist, and screenwriter Neil Gaiman (Sandman, American Gods, Coraline, The Graveyard Book) has been described by the Dictionary of Literary Biography as “one of the top ten living post-modern writers.”  Join Paul Levitz, former publisher of DC Comics and lecturer at Columbia University’s Center for American Studies as he talks with Gaiman about his life and his writing.   

Presented by the Institute for Israel & Jewish Studies and the Center for American Studies, ColumbiaUniversity.


Seriously, you people need to start taking your iphones and recording this stuff, kamikaze style.

    That’s pretty cool. It might be weird having the creator of Swamp Thing and the guy who banned Vertigo properties from appearing in DCU titles at the same event though.

    “Future” lecturer Paul Levitz–he won’t be teaching at Columbia until Spring 2012. But we’re looking forward to it!

    And the event is co-sponsored by the Institute for Israel and Jewish Studies, which also sponsored the Levitz/Claremont evening in Fall 2010, the Jules Feiffer talk in Spring 2010, and the Al Jaffee talk in Fall 2009. This event was likely to bring a crowd too large for any Columbia room to handle, hence Symphony Space.

    The director of the Center for American Studies is very comics-friendly. He’s the one who brought Art Spiegelman to teach at Columbia in Spring 2007, as well.

    Will the event be recorded for later viewing, either at the Symphony Space Live Web site or at Columbia’s Web site?

    SRS

    Len Wein is going to be there?

  5. Karen says:

    Synsidar: the event *was* filmed, but not by Columbia. I’m not sure if it was done by Symphony Space’s people or by Gaiman’s people, though.
