Know who this is? This is Neil Gaiman, a writer of fantasy for all ages, and the most famous unfamous person. Mr. Gaiman is not only a fabulous writer, but also a major advocate for libraries:
We’ve gone from looking at a desert, in which a librarian had to walk into the desert for you and come back with a lump of gold, to a forest, to this huge jungle in which what you want is one apple. And at that point, the librarian can walk into the jungle and come back with the apple. So I think from that point of view, the time of librarians, and the time of libraries—they definitely haven’t gone anywhere.
If you haven’t read any of Mr. Gaiman’s books, you’re missing out: they’re whimsical, thought-provoking, and unique, all at once. Check one out today!
