Legendary science fiction author Ray Bradbury would have celebrated his 93rd birthday on August 22. We are quite fond of Mr. Bradbury here at Book Riot. We’ve given you a reading pathway to his work, shared the special connections we have to his work, and at least one Rioter has his words tattooed on her body. Today, however, we are going to let Mr. Bradbury speak for himself. He has quite a way with words.
And we’ve included a few famous people reading his stuff, too. For good measure.
