I feel like I am smack in the thick of it here in Fitchburg, MA, were the cultural action is.
Fahrenheit 451 is being sponsored by Fitchburg State University, Fitchburg Public Library, Fitchburg Historical Society, Fitchburg Art Museum and Rollstone Studios. Members around the city are reading the book after so many years. There will be plays, art exhibits, book reads, discussions, stage performance, staged reading, lectures, library book club, altered books workshop, censorship roundtable discussion, film screening and progressive art exhibition day.
Now really, has a city ever done this before? I love living here. Life is rich, connected, inclusive and educational.
