In this era ofsheltering-in-place, people need conventions, panels, intellectual distractions and, above all, celebrations of Ray Bradbury! This is, after all, the great fantasist's centenary year.
So the Enoch Pratt Free Library is hosting and posting an online event, Ray Bradbury and the Future of Speculative Fiction. As the graphic above says, this Wednesday, August 19 at 6:30 p.m.
It begins with short readings from Bradbury's work by:
and David Wright
Followed by a panel discussion with all four of us, moderated by Sarah Pinsker.
It ought to be a lot of fun and, of course, it's free.
