2020 marks the centennial of Ray Bradbury, a writer of many classic short stories and novels whose works adapted for TV and movies. Bradbury's works included The Martian Chronicles, The Illustrated Man, Something Wicked This Way Comes and Fahrenheit 451. Some of his less-known work was quite prescient, especially "There Will Come Soft Rains," where parts of a house continue to function after its owners were killed by a non-destructive bomb. Bradbury never won a Hugo, but he was nominated for a few and he won a RetroHugo for Fahrenheit 451. He won a special Pulitzer for Lifetime Achievement. Come learn more about Bradbury's legacy with Jason Aukerman, the managing director of the Center for Ray Bradbury Studies
