California State University, Bakersfield's Antelope Valley campus is pleased to be sponsoring author Ray Bradbury on Tuesday, April 15 at 7 p.m. in The John Eliopoulos Hellenic Center, 43404 30th Street West, in Lancaster. Bradbury will speak about his life and his books.

Bradbury is one of those rare individuals whose writing has changed the way people think. His more than 500 published works - short stories, novels, plays, screenplays, television scripts, and verse - exemplify the American imagination at its most creative.

His best-known and most beloved books, "The Martian Chronicles," "The Illustrated Man," "Fahrenheit 451" and "Something Wicked This Way Comes" are considered masterworks. His timeless, constant appeal to audiences young and old has proven him to be one of the truly classic authors of the 20th century - and the 21st.

In recognition of his stature in the world of literature, Bradbury was awarded the National Book Foundation's 2000 Medal for Distinguished Contribution to American Letters, and the National Medal of Arts in 2004.

The event is open and free to the public. Seating is limited and will be available on a first come, first served basis. For more information contact Charles MacQuarrie at (661) 654-5098.
