A BRUIN BIRTHDAY TRIBUTE TO RAY BRADBURY

A half-century ago, a dystopia was born in the basement of Powell Library. There, in a study room with typewriters for rent, Ray Bradbury wrote his classic story of a book-burning future, "Fahrenheit 451." The acclaimed author of "The Martian Chronicles," "The Illustrated Man" and other mesmerizing tales has returned to campus many times since, most recently as a featured writer at the Los Angeles Times Festival of Books. Ray celebrates his 90th birthday on August 22, 2010.

Earlier this month, Ray shared highlights from a remarkable life. Watch his birthday message to his fans in the exclusive videos below:
