Star Man

Ray Bradbury, who was awarded a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in 2002, has like all the other honorees received extra attention lately because the Los Angeles Times is creating a database of features about them. Apart from Ray’s photo his entry is still generic but it should be one of the easier ones to research.

Bradbury’s star is at 6644 Hollywood Boulevard, which is on the south side of the street in front of Larry Edmunds Bookshop.

Bradbury received his star in a ceremony attended by Mayor James Hahn of Los Angeles, Johnny Grant (the “honorary Mayor of Hollywood”), Charlton Heston and other dignitaries. It was the kickoff event for “One Book, One City LA,” built around Bradbury’s Fahrenheit 451.
