Ray Bradbury Centennial with Neil Gaiman

HOST: Meg Wolitzer


Host Meg Wolitzer presents a celebration of science fiction and fantasy writer Ray Bradbury. The live event was hosted by fan Neil Gaiman, who introduces three stories that demonstrate both Bradbury’s imagination and his humanism. In “There Will Come Soft Rains,” a smart home is all that’s left in the wake of devastation—and it can’t stop working. The reader is Yetide Badaki. Javier Muñoz performs “The Fog Horn,” which presents a creature of the deep as an object of both fear and sympathy. And in “Embroidery,” a simple craft turns out to have unexpected power. It’s read by Kirsten Vangsness.
