#BookFaceFriday “Fahrenheit 451”
This #BookFaceFriday is burning down the house!
This week’s #BookFace
was an easy choice because it’s #BannedBooksWeek
, an annual event celebrating the freedom to read. Typically held during the last week of September, it highlights the value of free and open access to information. “Fahrenheit 451
” by Ray Bradbury (Random House, 1953), set in a future where printed books are banned and actively destroyed, it’s become a hallmark for Banned Books Week. Ironically, it’s also been banned and challenged itself, as recently as 2006. This classic novel is a part of our NLC Book Club Kit collection, reserve it for your book club to read and discuss today!
“Brilliant . . . Startling and ingenious . . . Mr. Bradbury’s account of this insane world, which bears many alarming resemblances to our own, is fascinating.” —Orville Prescott, The New York Times
