The Crypt on the Green
St James Church, Clerkenwell

Neil Gaiman, prolific creator of prose, poetry, film, journalism, comics, song lyrics, and drama, is known as one of the world's top ten living post-modern writers. He is also patron of the Open Rights Group (ORG). In this, the first public appearance of his Graveyard Book UK tour, he invites fans and ORG supporters to discuss piracy from the perspective of a creator, what it means to be one of the tribe of readers, and why most people discover their favourite authors for free.

Entry to this special event is free to new supporters of ORG who join between now and the event. Existing ORG supporters will be charged a discount rate of 5 pounds and the general public will be asked for the full price of 10 pounds.

Attendees will receive an A3 poster celebrating the publication of Neil's latest work, The Graveyard Book, and a chance to win a signed copy of the book.

19.00 - Doors open. We'll welcome you into the crypt with wine and nibbles.

19.30 - Neil's talk starts and will be followed by an extended Q&A

21.00 - The talk finishes and all attendees are invited for a drink to the private upstair rooms of an adjacent pub, The Three Kings
