2016 marks the fiftieth birthday of Francois Truffaut's film version of FAHRENHEIT 451. To mark the occasion, our journal THE NEW RAY BRADBURY REVIEW will publish a special issue devoted to the film and Bradbury's novel, guest-edited by Bradbury Center Senior Advisor Phil Nichols.
Carol Birch, a nationally-recognized storyteller and friend of the Bradbury Center, will be in Indianapolis on March 19th to cap a month of events focused on one of Ray Bradbury's favorite authors: Nobel laureate JohnÂ Steinbeck and his classic novel, The Grapes of Wrath.
The Waukegan Public Library just launched its 32nd annual Ray Bradbury Creative Contest. This yearâ€™s theme is inspired by Bradburyâ€™s landmark novel Fahrenheit 451.Â

During October 2013, the Center received two major gifts of Bradbury materials. Click on News to read about these amazing gifts and the donors who made these acquisitions possible. The cross-country journey was only the beginning, however; we have many challenges ahead as we preserve and prepare these materials for public access, so please consider making a financial gift to the Center.
