Ray Bradbury's Fahrenheit 451 will be discussed on Tuesday, April 30 from 7 - 8:30 p.m. in Room 2 as part of Toronto Public Library's Keep Toronto Reading Festival.

The discussion will be led by a librarian from the Merril Collection, whose expertise is in science fiction and fantasy.

I Fahrenheit 451 listened to the audiobook read by Bradbury himself.  In an interview at the end of his reading, you'll discover that Bradbury wrote the novel in the early 1950's on a rental typewriter in the basement of UCLA's Lawrence Clark Powell library.  During his career he produced over 500 published works that included novels, short stories and screen plays.  Fahrenheit 451 became one of his best known novels. He died at the age of 91 on June 5, 2012.

Come and join the discussion of this very powerful novel.  There is still time to read the book, listen to the audio, or watch the DVD.
