It’s hard to overstate the importance of the seven-decade career of writer Ray Bradbury. Today Bradbury’s books, papers and many personal artifacts are housed at IUPUI’s Center for Ray Bradbury Studies. Professor Jonathan Eller, one of the world’s foremost experts on the author, is shepherd of this incredible treasure trove. He joins us for this Quantum Leap INconversation to discuss Bradbury and his legacy, the deep connections between the author and the space program, and the unique role of science fiction in helping us imagine the future.
Thanks to a partnership with Ash & Elm Cider Company, attendees will be able to sip a limited-edition cider inspired by Bradbury’s famous dandelion wine recipe. Ray Haberski, Professor of History and Director of American Studies at IUPUI, will moderate.
