The 4th Annual Ray Bradbury Memorial Lecture: Escape Velocity: Ray Bradbury and the American Space Program, August 23, 2017

Presented by Jonathan R. Eller, Chancellor’s Professor of English Director, Center for Ray Bradbury Studies, IUPUI

One of the reasons that Ray Bradbury remains one of the best-known writers of our time is that his dreams of reaching the stars became our dreams, too. The stories that grew into The Martian Chronicles and filled the pages of The Illustrated Man paved the way for his half-century relationship with NASA, the Jet Propulsion Laboratory, and all the missions that took humans to the moon and launched unmanned craft to all the planets of our solar system.

Location: Central Library Riley Room 40 E. St. Clair Street
