From the FG-Announce list at Yahoo:
We’re thrilled to announce that Karen Berger will be attending Fiddler’s Green!
Karen Berger is currently a Vice President of DC Comics and Executive Editor of their Vertigo line. She is recognized as an eminent, groundbreaking editor in the comics industry who has consistently recruited innovative writers and artists and nurtured original new story lines. She is principally responsible for the creation of DC’s Vertigo line, and for hiring Neil Gaiman to write its flagship title, THE SANDMAN. As editor of THE SANDMAN and other titles, she is a multiple-times winner of the Eisner award for Best Editor.
We’re looking forward to Karen’s participation in the Fiddler’s Green program.
