The City of Los Angeles will celebrate Ray Bradbury Week starting on Ray’s 90th birthday, August 22.
Steven Paul Leiva began pushing the idea last July when his essay “Searching for Ray Bradbury” was posted on the LA Times’ Hero Complex blog. An advisor to LA City Council President Eric Garcetti has agreed with his suggestion to pass a resolution dedicating the week to Ray.
Leiva’s celebration is gathering momentum, with the LA Public Library and the Writers Guild considering how they will participate. And the media will be involved too.
Recently Leiva went public by starting a Facebook page to let the public know how the plans are progressing.
