¬†I SAW IT AT RAY'S HOUSE
Early in his career Ray Bradbury had the good fortune to meet a young college student on her way to becoming a teacher, college instructor, and eventually a successful fiction writer. Eve Crook met Ray Bradbury in 1946, and during the early 2000s she was able to renew her friendship with him.
Ball State University will host the kick-off events for the National Endowment for the Arts "The Big Read" activities in Muncie, Indiana (http://munciebigread.weebly.com/reading-activities.html#/).

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.
