Host Lisa Morrison facilitates a discussion of the “One Book One Bloomington and Beyond” community literary project with guests Michael Simmons and Heather Lynn. This year One Book One Bloomington and Beyond is partnering with The Big Read, an initiative of the National Endowment for the Arts, to encourage communities to come together to read and discuss “Fahrenheit 451” by Ray Bradbury, the classic novel that takes the materials of pulp fiction and transforms them into a visionary parable of a society gone awry, in which firemen burn books and the state suppresses learning. The Monroe County Public Library is stocking extra copies of the book for community discussions. Simmons shares a reading from the book and Lynn describes the many public events encouraging participation in the “One Book One Bloomington” campaign.
