This sound like a dream job for young (or old) booklovers: Robin Young offered her summer intern, Alyssa Greenberg, the chance to interview her favorite author, Neil Gaiman. They were discussing his book American Gods, which is 10 years old. I would say both the author and the student gained from the exchange.
This story reminded me of all the summer students and interns we have who add so much to Evanston Public Library, not to mention the teens who are active in programming. Here’s a nod to all the young people!
PS- Gaiman’s book Neverwhere is the selection for One Book, One Chicago.(Check out his blog.)
