2013 Dedication of Palms-Rancho Park Library to Ray

On September 23, 2013, the Palms-Rancho Park Branch Library near Ray Bradbury's Cheviot Hills home was dedicated to Ray. There was a panel discussion on that date which included Steven Paul Leiva, George Clayton Johnson, and the inimitable Harlan Ellison. For me, the funniest part of the talk is listening to Harlan Ellison describe his horror at Ray signing books from his collection with his usual black Sharpie, due to the fact the ink would leak through the signed page. At one point, Harlan says he begged Ray not to use a Sharpie, but that Ray came at him with "a marker that was as big as Lithuania"! The link below will take you to a video that very entertaining talk. (A warning to the sensitive: Harlan Ellison uses some very colorful language in his remarks.)
