Announcing a new Meetup for a ne{o}lit book club!

What: Neil Gaiman's The Graveyark Book

When: April 29,[masked]:30 PM

Where: Click the link below to find out!

Meetup Description: I have to admit, Gaiman's claim the idea for the book came after watching his son pedal his tricycle around a graveyard made me laugh. The idea that moment led him to ponder writing the Jungle Book in a graveyard an interesting evolution of a story idea. It fits into a theme running through our books of late. That of current novels heavily shadowing well know works of the past.

Anyway.............


The Graveyard Book is a young adult fantasy novel by Neil Gaiman. The story is about a boy named Nobody Owens, whose family is killed by a mysterious man named Jack, and who is subsequently adopted and raised by the occupants of an old graveyard. Gaiman's first full-length children's novel since the bestselling and widely acclaimed Coraline, The Graveyard Book won the 2009 Newbery.

See you there.
