Ray Bradbury on Fahrenheit 451 and Humanity’s Future

Today we offer the final installment in our series of interviews with Ray Bradbury. These videos follow closely on the heels of our serialization of Tim Hamilton’s graphic novel adaptation of Bradbury’s Fahrenheit 451. Bradbury has discussed Hamilton’s vision of his famous novel, and reflected on his writing process, his life philosophy, and other collaborations he’s joined to bring his fiction to new media. Last week he shared how he overcame one of the greatest challenges of his career–a fear of flying which prevented him from traveling and lecturing as he wished.

In this week’s segment, the author is enthusiastic about the forthcoming film adaptation of Fahrenheit 451, to be written and directed by Oscar-nominee Frank Darabont. Bradbury advocates for a renewed focus on childhood literacy in the United States, lest his novel’s dystopian vision come to pass.
