The reason why we decided to do a special sparkle on Aug. 9, was because it was a team member’s 96th birthday. Her name is Dorthy Newton and she is an inspiration to many. We decided to do a drive-by birthday celebration. The best part was it was a surprise!
In celebration of what would have been the landmark of sci-fi writer Ray Bradbury’s 100th birthday on Aug. 22, The Library of Congress, the Los Angeles Public Library, and the Alliance for Young Artists & Writers have banded together to host the first virtual “read-a-thon” dedicated to Bradbury’s dystopian classic “Fahrenheit 451.” Venice actress and longtime supporter of The Friends of the Venice Library, Alley Mills Bean (of “The Wonder Years” and widow of the late entertainer Orson Bean) is among the 68 Year Old Birthday Vintage August 1952 Quarantine Edition shirt celebrity readers.
Starting at 1:30 pm on Saturday you can watch pre-recorded readings and introductions by Mills Bean, “Crazy Ex-Girlfriend” star Rachel Bloom, “Star Trek” legend William Shatner (aka Captain Kirk), fantasy author Neil Gaiman and many others as their voices merge into one continuous reading of the entire novel, “creating four hours of thought-provoking entertainment” say organizers in a statement on the read-a-thon.
Some readers may even be reading on-site in historic rooms of the 68 Year Old Birthday Vintage August 1952 Quarantine Edition shirt Los Angeles Public Library, the Library of Congress and the former Carnegie Library building in Waukegan, Illinois, where Bradbury spent much of his childhood lost in books. The backdrops will bring Bradbury’s classic novel to life through a 21st century, COVID-friendly lens.
Many may not be aware that Bradbury’s life as a writer began in Venice. In 1942, he moved to a small house at 670 Venice Boulevard where he sat in a one-car garage and wrote short stories like “The Lake” and “The Wind” as well as the famed “Martian Chronicles.” From “The Fog Horn” inspired by the shattered remains of the 68 Year Old Birthday Vintage August 1952 Quarantine Edition shirt Venice Pier roller coaster to the decaying Venice Canals that set the scene for “Death Is a Lonely Business,” Venice had a large influence on the stories he told.
