It was a pleasure to burn.

ImageJoin the library and the entire community in celebrating the 60th Anniversary of one of the great books of the 20th century, Ray Bradbury’s Fahrenheit 451.

Fahrenheit 451‘s enduring and still relevant themes of the perils of censorship, authoritarianism, and anti-intellectualism have inspired adaptations on stage and screen, as a graphic novel and as an opera, and launched countless book groups and readings.

Fitchburg State is excited to be working with multiple community partners to bring a variety of activities and discussions to the University and wider community during the coming weeks, starting with a staged reading this Saturday, 9/14, and culminating with an art exhibition on 10/19. For a full schedule of events and more details, visit the Fahrenheit 451 Community Read events page.

The library will be hosting two book talks on Fahrenheit 451, so please join us on the first floor in the casual reading area (“The Nook”) to bring your perspectives on Bradbury’s work on Wednesday, September 18 at 4:00, and Monday, September 23 at 12:30

Yes, thought Montag, that’s the one I’ll save for noon. For noon… When we reach the city.
