Team Museums at Night meet Neil Gaiman

We love working in partnership with all kinds of organisations to help make the Museums at Night festival a success, and for the last few years we’ve collaborated with the Reading Agency to connect authors with arts and heritage venues for exciting after-hours events.

Nick and I were delighted to be invited along to their annual lecture at the Barbican this week, given by one of my favourite authors, Neil Gaiman. He gave a compelling description of the value of libraries, with examples from his own life, and the importance of reading – you can read the full text of his lecture here.

It was amazing to meet the man himself afterwards – and also to talk to all kinds of authors, publishers and librarians, and to hear about the diverse types of events that libraries run all year round.

Thanks to the Reading Agency for inviting us along: we’re looking forward to working together on even more exciting collaborations for Museums at Night 2014!
