You probably know of Ray Bradbury because of his iconic novel Fahrenheit 451, but, as with all great artists, there's a lot more to this man than his literature. If you've enjoyed Bradbury's works, you'll love this video: A Conversation with Ray Bradbury.
Behind every great writer is a great reader, and, as you can see from the video, Bradbury is no exception. Almost immediately he begins to talk about his love for reading. "Libraries fulfill you." he says. It's so fantastic to hear such a well-known author give voice to how important reading is for a great education.
But Bradbury doesn't stop there, he continues to expound on how important literature is for a functioning civilization, touches on his childhood love of good movies, and talks in depth about the process of writing his novel Fahrenheit 451. There's definitely a little bit of something here for everyone, and every single statement is fascinating to the extreme.
This video is endearing (especially when Bradbury's cat is hanging about) and I'm sure you'll love to learn some new and fascinating facts about a great author. Nothing is closer to the truth than hearing the writer himself tell his own stories. No doubt you'll fall in love with the man behind the words in no time at all!
