Science Fiction Author Ray Bradbury
to Speak at Hopkins

Ray Bradbury, the celebrated author of Fahrenheit 451 and The Martian Chronicles, will speak at Johns Hopkins University on Thursday, Feb. 8. The talk, "One Thousand and One Ways to Solve the Future," is presented by the university's Office of Special Events at 8 p.m. in Shriver Hall Auditorium on the Homewood campus.

Bradbury is one of the most prolific and best-selling contemporary American authors, noted for an imagination that runs from the macabre to the whimsical and ranges easily through time and space. Frequently described as a science fiction writer, Bradbury has called himself a "magical realist." He has more than 500 published works including short stories and novels. Among them are The Illustrated Man, Dandelion Wine, Something Wicked This Way Comes, and I Sing the Body Electric! His most recent novels are Graveyard for Lunatics and Yestermorrow.

His writings include motion picture screenplays, radio and TV dramas, and a number of stage plays, collected in The Anthem Sprinters, The Wonderful Ice-Cream Suit and Other Plays, and Pillar of Fire and Other Plays for Today, Tomorrow, and Beyond Tomorrow. He has also published several volumes of poetry.

Tickets are $10 general admission and may be purchased at the Office of Special Events in Shriver Hall on the Homewood campus, 3400 N. Charles Street in Baltimore, or by calling (410) 516-7157.
