Neil Gaiman Reading Agency lecture 2013

On the 14 October at the Barbican Centre, London Neil Gaiman delivered an impassioned lecture in support of the future of reading and libraries.

Albert Einstein was asked once how we could make our children intelligent. His reply was both simple and wise. “If you want your children to be intelligent,” he said, “read them fairy tales. If you want them to be more intelligent, read them more fairy tales.”

He understood the value of reading, and of imagining. I hope we can give our children a world in which they will read, and be read to, and imagine, and understand.
