Four months from today, it will be Ray Bradbury's birthday. He would have been 95.
Five years and four months from now, it will be the 100th anniversary of his birth.
How should it be celebrated? Who should celebrate it? Start thinking. Start planning. Start sharing ideas.
An interesting comparison might be the Orson Welles centenary, which is this year. Here's a list of events known to Wellesnet.com
A few days ago, I received this fine gift from a friend who asked upon presenting it to me (before I had a chance to opened its elegant box), "For whom should another of these be made?".
My immediate answer to his question was correct.
Still a few years out from "100", who might initiated such an honorable RB commemorative?
Could the Carnegie Library in Waukegan/Green Town become the Ray Bradbury Museum? How could this happen? What events should begin now to reach this goal?
Thanks for the information about Ray and Cally. ( I always wanted to abbreviate the state.)
Have a great time in Los Angelos.
It's in the works but as for events such as fundraisers I don't know the details but Phil and others here probably do.
The Peter Jay Sharp Theater, part of SymphonySpace in New York City, has announced a "Ray Bradbury Centennial Celebration" at the theater on May 20, 2020. This is the first specific event celebrating Ray Bradbury's 100th birthday of which I have become aware. I have no doubt there will be many more to come. Hopefully, as such celebrations are announced, folks will post information about them on this Board.

Tickets for the Ray Bradbury Centennial Celebration to be held on May 20, 2020 at SymphonyCenter in New York City went on sale to the general public this week. It has also been announced that the event will be hosted by the fine writer, and Bradbury admirer, Neil Gaiman. Mr. Gaiman wrote the introduction for the limited edition of THE MACHINERIES OF JOY published by PS Publishing in the U.K. several years ago. A link to Mr. Gaiman's introduction to that book is included below. As Mr. Gaiman also writes, "...the landscape of the world we live in would have been diminished if we had not had him in our world....I am so glad that I knew him."
