The date: August 25, 2007. The place: the late, lamented Mystery and Imagination Bookshop in Glendale, California. The event: a belated 87th birthday party for Ray Bradbury, during which William F. Nolan gave Ray his special Pulitzer citation that Ray had been unable to travel to New York to receive personally. And afterward, George Clayton Johnson waxed eloquently about Ray's writing, and its influence on him and many others. To watch the event, just click on the link below:

From the Pulitzer Prize website, the link below will take you to a 2007 article...appearing at approximately the same time as when Ray Bradbury was awarded his Pulitzer Prize Special Citation..recommending three of Ray's works: SOMETHING WICKED THIS WAY COMES. THE MARTIAN CHRONICLES, and the film IT CAME FROM OUTER SPACE, for which he wrote a detailed screen treatment:

How deserving Mr. Bradbury was in receiving his 2007 Pulitzer Award!

When we travelled to attend his 89th BD celebration at the M&I Bookstore in 2009, we were so honored to meet and to speak with George Clayton Johnson, William Nolan, John King Tarpinian, Bo Derek, Malcomb and Christine Bell, and so many other friends and fans of Mr. Bradbury.

The welcoming and sincere conversations shared with my wife, me, and our then two young sons were beyond explanation. Much like Mr. Bradbury's writings, his friendships were influential and unique!
This clip says it all:

....As does what Mr. Bradbury did (for us) when his travels to NYS to receive his Pulitzer Award were not possible:
