We met China Mieville and he was so nice!
« on: March 11, 2007, 02:59:04 PM »
Went to a reading and book signing a few weeks ago. The author China Mieville came to Richmond promoting his new book Un Lun Dun, which is for younger readers. Several kids were in attendance, including my youngest DD who is 13. Mr. Mieville was incredibly gracious and patient signing books for fans, talking to everyone, answering questions, and spending time talking to the younger audience members. My daughter wanted to show him some of her drawings ( he did art for this new book) and he was MORE than polite and gracious. He truly showed interest in her drawings, asked questions, and was very complimentary. He was so personable and made it a delightful and memorable experience. I was really appreciative of how he was encouraging of the kids and talked to everyone like a grown-up.
