Just announced by the American Writers Museum: "Chasing the White Whale", an on-line discussion of Ray Bradbury's screenplay for director John Houston's film version of MOBY DICK. The presentation will take place on Thursday, September 9, 2021 at 5 p.m. Central Daylight Time. In this program, scholars Robin Anne Reid and Jaime Campomar will talk with Will Hansen of Chicago's Newberry Library about Bradbury’s Moby-Dick script, the author’s place in the history of literature, and the connections between his work and the writings of Herman Melville. Registration for the program, which can be viewed on Zoom, is free, and is being handled by the Newberry Library. (Incidentally, the Newberry Library's Herman Melville collection is one of the largest in existence!) For more information, just click on the link below:

I headed into downtown Chicago today for the American Writers Festival put on by the American Writers Museum. Attended the discussion by the fine science fiction writer John Scalzi (perhaps best known for his novel OLD MAN'S WAR), who acknowledges Ray Bradbury's influence on his career. And I also stopped by the Museum to check out its "Ray Bradbury: Inextinguishable" exhibit, which will end on the last day of this month, and took the photo attached below:

The American Writers Museum in Chicago, Illinois has announced that its RAY BRADBURY-INEXTINGUISHABLE exhibit has been extended through this summer. Rather than closing at the end of May, as originally planned, the exhibit is now scheduled to close on September 5, 2022. If you have plans to be in the Chicago area this summer, the exhibit is well worth a visit. As stated by the Museum in its announcement of the extension, "Learn about Bradbury's legacy and influence, and see personal items from his life up close like his paintbrushes, desk, toys, awards, typewriter and more before they are gone!"

In its e-mail newsletter of today's date, the American Writers Museum in Chicago reminds folks that there is only one more month left to explore its special exhibit, "Ray Bradbury: Inextinguishable!", and that the exhibit will close on September 5, 2022. Having seen the exhibit myself, I can vouch that it is well worth a visit for Bradbury fans who are going to be in the Chicago area before September 5. As the Museum itself states in its newsletter:

"Be sure to check out Ray Bradbury: Inextinguishable to learn more about the vast influence Bradbury's writing has had on the world, from modern science fiction writers to Disney, and even NASA and the Russian space program. Plus, see personal items from Bradbury's life such as his desk, typewriter, paintbrushes, various awards and more before they are gone! We are open from 10am to 5pm Thursday through Monday and all exhibits are included with Museum admission."

Several years ago, our family traveled to IUPUI when Dr. Jon Eller was just getting the Bradbury archives organized for public viewing. Huge transports of books, files, furniture, artwork, chests, awards, and personal keepsakes were still stored in several rooms adjacent to what is now the wonderful, permanent Center for Ray Bradbury Studies. Our return a couple of years later allowed us to actually assist Dr. Eller and his staff with some organization of RB works which were published in various foreign languages. Mrs. Eller was present and offered countless anecdotes on how everything was eventually getting so well arranged and accounted for. As we all know, Mr. B kept everything!

As I revisted the American Writers Museum Virtual Exhibit link: https://exhibits.americanwrite...ble/virtual-exhibit/

...I continued to wonder what it would have been like to have taught Ray Badbury's works during my tenure with the technology that is now available. I had once listed nearly 200+ works of RB that were shared with classroom student of all ages. Out of the HS hallways now for ten years, I still offer adult programs at a nearby college and for various libraries. Amazingly, Mr. Bradbury's stories are so in-tune with what we are experiencing today.

Technology is finally catching up with RB's imagination!

I posted this on the Board last October, but it's definitely worth repeating at this time of the year! From Chicago's American Writers Museum, "Ray Bradbury's Guide to Throwing the Best Halloween Party":
