Happy Birthday, Ray Bradbury!

Acclaimed author, rabid reader, and library lover, Ray Bradbury passed away on June 5th last year.  Bradbury’s books were life-changing for many reader’s but it was his infectious joy for life that made admirers of many.

 

“And what, you ask, does writing teach us?
First and foremost, it reminds us that we are alive and that it is gift and a privilege, not a right. We must earn life once it has been awarded us. Life asks for rewards back because it has favored us with animation.
So while our art cannot, as we wish it could, save us from wars, privation, envy, greed, old age, or death, it can revitalize us amidst it all.”

–Ray Bradbury, 1990
