Join us for our kick-off Community Marathon Read on Saturday, April 2 as we celebrate banned books and Ray Bradbury’s Fahrenheit 451.
We’ll begin at 1pm and continue through the book until we reach the end. Join us as a reader and/or simply listen or watch along!
With dialogue like “the public itself stopped reading of its own accord” to “nobody listens anymore” to “no one has time anymore for anyone else,” Bradbury’s classic is relevant today. Especially as we’ve seen book burnings happen in 2022 America.
Neil Gaiman wrote “A young reader finding this book today, or the day after tomorrow, is going to have to imagine first a past, and then a future that belongs to the past. But still, the heart of the book remains untouched, and the questions Bradbury raises remain as valid and important.”
