    This weekend, the Ray Bradbury Centennial team, in partnership with the Library of Congress, Los Angeles Public Library, and the Alliance for Young Artists & Writers, will present the first annual Ray Bradbury Read-A-Thon: a chorus of voices will read Ray Bradbury’s classic novel Fahrenheit 451 in its entirety, the rest of us following along from our homes (preferably with hard copies in hand). Participants include Neil Gaiman, Susan Orlean, Marlon James, William Shatner, and—of course—Rachel Bloom.

    The Read-A-Thon will premiere at 4:30 PM, Eastern Time, on August 22, 2020, and will be available online until September 5, for all of your quarantine entertainment needs.
