Neil Gaiman and Chapter 5 The Dance Macabre

Neil Gaiman was in Palo Alto last night for his book tour of the The Graveyard Book. This book tour is unique for he is reading a chapter from the book at each stop on his tour and he is having it video taped. Keplers book store did an amazing job of setting up the stage. They placed a comfy chair and end table filled with water, a beautiful lamp and a black crow. They also placed mock headstones of the books characters surrounding his chair. This is video from last night.

If you go onto his website you can get the entire book on video, now how awesome is that? His voice is so soothing and he does all the voices. I highly recommend watching it.

These are some of the pictures I took that night, unfortunately I did not take many pictures because it was too dark and no flash could be used.

That's so awesome! I'm so glad you made it to this reading. I wish I had made it into Manhattan for the first chapter. :(

I only watched the first 3 minutes of this chapter because I want to read the whole book, but yeah, I could listen to him reading for hours.
