Free guided walking tours that tell the story of native son Ray Bradbury are offered by The Waukegan History Museum on October 19 and 26.
Walk the streets of the author’s “Green Town” on a guided tour of downtown Waukegan. The places, people, and events from Bradbury’s fictional Green Town (Waukegan) books “Dandelion Wine,” “Farewell Summer,” and “Something Wicked This Way Comes,” as well as some of short stories, will be highlighted.
Waukegan’s Carnegie Library will be featured on the Ray Bradbury’s Green Town Guided Walking Tour. It is where young Bradbury first fell in love with books, and is used as a setting in his novel Something Wicked this Way Comes.
