Special Guest: Ray Bradbury Joins Hollywood Xpo!

Ray Bradbury, the legendary writer, will be making a personal appearance for 1 DAY ONLY at Hollywood Xpo, Saturday October 16 2010.
(Please note, Ray’s appearance at Hollywood Xpo may be subject to his health.)
Ray Bradbury is one of those rare individuals whose writing has changed the way people think. His more than five hundred published works — short stories, novels, plays, screenplays, television scripts, and verse — exemplify the American imagination at its most creative.
Once read, his words are never forgotten. His best-known and most beloved books, THE MARTIAN CHRONICLES, THE ILLUSTRATED MAN, FAHRENHEIT 451 and SOMETHING WICKED THIS WAY COMES, are masterworks that readers carry with them over a lifetime. His timeless, constant appeal to audiences young and old has proven him to be one of the truly classic authors of the 20th Century — and the 21st. His stories have been adapted for film, TV, as well as comic books with 27 appearing in classic EC Comics.
In recognition of his stature in the world of literature and the impact he has had on so many for so many years, Bradbury was awarded the National Book Foundation’s 2000 Medal for Distinguished Contribution to American Letters, an the National Medal of Arts in 2004.

Ray’s latest film project is RAY BRADBURY’S CHRYSALIS. Hollywood Xpo is also pleased to bring you a special panel about Chrysalis.
