Even more exciting, Write Out Loud is planning out a series of (hopefully) three South Park Community Reads of Fahrenheit 451 - public, open readings of the book, right here in my 'hood. The first section, The Hearth and the Salamander, is scheduled for April 4th at Progress at 2225 30th Street, San Diego. As more info comes to light about times and other events, I'll post it here. If all goes well, parts two and three will be at The Grove and Rebecca's Coffee House, South Park.
More information on the creative project can be found in several places: writeoutloudsd.com, by contacting them directly at (619) 297-8953, emailing firstname.lastname@example.org, or by clicking on the flyer from WOL below. Info on all of the community reads and everything else Write Out Loud is up to (a staggering amount of 451-related events), can be found at the NEA website.
