Award-winning author Neil Gaiman drew more than 500 people to a National Press Club Book Rap June 23. After Gaiman spoke, he signed copies of his recently released “American Gods Tenth Anniversary Edition.”
Gaiman normally does not personalize books, so the book signing at the Club event, organized by Emily Whitten of the Book and Author and Young Members Committees, was a rare opportunity for the enthusiastic crowd.
“American Gods” was originally published in 2001. Gaiman’s first event promoting the book was at the Borders in the World Trade Center in New York City, he said.
