Philip Pullman, meet Ray Bradbury

Recently Philip Pullman railed against television, calling it “social poison.” And interestingly, around the same time, Ray Bradbury was interviewed in LA Weekly where he explained that his landmark book, Fahrenheit 451 is not about censorship, but “…a story about how television destroys interest in reading literature.” Fascinating stuff.

  1. Monica,

    Thanks for the link to the article about Ray Bradbury. It was great reading. Do you remember the film The Electric Grandmother that was made from Bradbury’s I Sing the Body Electric? We had a video of it in our school library. The kids who saw it absolutely loved it.
