Master of Sci-Fi and Then Some

Ray Bradbury (1921-2012)
Influential sci-fi icon, Ray Bradbury, passed away today.  He cared about books and his books have stood the test of time. His voice will be dearly missed by the legions of real people who were moved by his words.

Bradbury received the 2000 National Book Foundation Medal for Distinguished Contribution to American Letters, the 2004 National Medal of Arts and a 2007 Pulitzer Prize Special Citation.

Read or re-read Bradbury's classics this summer.  Our summer reading program theme is Dream Big READ! and Bradbury's dreams for everyone who appreciates a well-told story, told so personally, were very big indeed.

The Martian Chronicles
The Illustrated Man
Fahrenheit 451
