Banned Books and Ig Nobels

It's BANNED BOOKS WEEK!

Would you like a graphic novel reading list? The Huffington Post gives you a slideshow of the ten most challenged graphic novels...


The list will probably surprise you.

...

Tonight I found myself on the stage of the Ig Nobel Awards, sitting in a row of seven seats, each of which had NOBEL LAUREATE on a piece of paper except for the one that said NEIL GAIMAN, and that made me feel both pleased and (in a very good, almost reassuring way) insignificant.




The Ig Nobels are funny and glorious and exist on the intersection of science and silliness.

I gave a speech -- a 24 second speech, followed by a seven word summary -- on Writer Identification. The theme of the evening was Bacteria. I'll post a link to the video of the evening when it goes up, and you can see what I said. (And how fast I said it.)

...

Right. Bed now. (Oh. If you're in New York on Saturday, Lemony Snicket wants to buy you a free ice cream: http://www.publishersweekly.com/pw/by-topic/childrens/childrens-book-news/article/44661-three-words-free-ice-cream.html)
