Under the "Centennial" link on the RayBradbury.com site which houses this Forum, it notes that on August 22, 2020, the 100th anniversary of Ray's birth, the Bradbury Centennial, in partnership with libraries across the country, will bring people together to take part in a live streamed reading of the Ray’s work. This site writes that "honoring Bradbury’s life-long love of libraries as welcoming places that expand the mind and spark the imagination, writers, scholars, and readers of all ages will bring the fantastical worlds of his timeless stories to life." The event will be accessible via YouTube and Instagram. RayBradbury.com asks that we check back for details on how to watch.
