MELISSA BLOCK, HOST:
And while we're on the subject of books, we'd like to take just a minute to announce a special treat for all the kids who may be listening in the back seat or at the kitchen table. It is the ALL THINGS CONSIDERED Back-Seat Book Club. We want our young listeners to get involved and send in questions for their favorite authors.
First up will be Neil Gaiman and "The Graveyard Book."
NEIL GAIMAN: (Reading) You weren't allowed out of the graveyard, because it's only in the graveyard that we can keep you safe. This is where you live, and this is where those who love you can be found.
ROBERT SIEGEL, HOST:
Read the book, or visit npr.org for a link to listen to the whole thing online. And then email us questions about "The Graveyard Book." Write to BackSeatBookClub@npr.org, and Neil Gaiman will join us with answers on Halloween.
