Bradbury 101: Close Up with the Curator

Join us for Bradbury 101: Close Up with the Curator, a customized opportunity to learn more about Bradbury 101, the large exhibit of The Anne Farr Hardin Collection of Ray Bradbury Books, Fanzines, Pulps, Magazines, Correspondence, Photographs, Memorabilia and Ephemera. Hardin recently donated her collection of rare and one-of-a-kind items to the Libraries’ Irvin Department of Rare Books and Special Collections.

Attendees will be able to talk with exhibit curator Michael Weisenburg, screen the 2001 video recording of Ray Bradbury’s lecture for the USC First Year Reading Experience, and purchase copies of Anne Hardin’s Compendium. Proceeds from the sale will be used to acquire additional materials for the Hardin Collection.

Bradbury, whose work shaped the fantasy, science fiction, horror and mystery genres, is perhaps best known for his novels Fahrenheit 451, The Martian Chronicles and The Illustrated Man. Many of his works were adapted for television, movies and comic books.

Guided tours of Bradbury 101 will be offered.

Wednesday, Dec. 14, 5:30 – 7 p.m., Hollings Library Program Room
