As I have mentioned more than a few times over the years, I was a voracious reader of Ray Bradbury’s novels and short stories as a kid.

Check out the excellent introductory three-minute trailer for the exhibition featuring fellow sci-fi and fantasy authors John Scalzi, Rachel Bloom, and Maurice Broaddus below.
