RIP Ray Bradbury! Bradbury passed away last night in Southern California (LA Times). Bradbury wrote his famous book Fahrenheit 451 (published in 1953) in the UCLA library on a rental typewriter. As published in USA Today, “Typewriters cost 10 cents a half hour to rent. He said he carried a sack full of dimes to the library and completed the book in nine days, at a cost of $9.80.” In 2011, UCLA named its Café 451 in honor of Bradbury’s book.
