Becoming Ray Bradbury

One of this Indianapolis Observer's favorite authors is Ray Bradbury (pictured).

The author of "The Martian Chronicles", "Fahrenheit 451" and "Something Wicked This Way Comes" is the subject of a presentation by Jonathan R. Eller, who's on the faculty of the School of Liberal Arts at Indiana University-Purdue University in Indianapolis.

He discusses "Becoming Ray Bradbury" during an 11:30 a.m. presentation tomorrow (17 January) in the Faculty Club of the IUPUI Conference Center, 850 West Michigan Street.

Dr. Eller chronicles the making of this iconic American writer by exploring Bradbury’s childhood and early years of his long life in fiction, film, television, radio, and theater. The author measures the impact of the authors, artists, illustrators, and filmmakers who stimulated Bradbury’s imagination throughout his first three decades.
