  • June's pick is Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury.

    Ray Bradbury’s internationally acclaimed novel Fahrenheit 451 is a masterwork of twentieth-century literature set in a bleak, dystopian future.


    Guy Montag is a fireman. In his world, where television rules and literature is on the brink of extinction, firemen start fires rather than put them out. His job is to destroy the most illegal of commodities, the printed book, along with the houses in which they are hidden.

    Montag never questions the destruction and ruin his actions produce, returning each day to his bland life and wife, Mildred, who spends all day with her television “family.” But then he meets an eccentric young neighbor, Clarisse, who introduces him to a past where people didn’t live in fear and to a present where one sees the world through the ideas in books instead of the mindless chatter of television.

    When Mildred attempts suicide and Clarisse suddenly disappears, Montag begins to question everything he has ever known. He starts hiding books in his home, and when his pilfering is discovered, the fireman has to run for his life.

    We did drive to Blossom. The weather was great. We met with another couple and had a nice time. We checked the weather very close to 5:00 pm. I'm not complaining but it would help if rescheduling took place earlier in the day. :)

    We have run into a problem, our reservation was for outside and it is going to thunderstorm. They have no room inside. Would you guys like to meet elsewhere or cancel the meeting?

      We can reschedule, we should just do it soon so no one drives out

      From what I hear tonight is supposed to be like last night, and if down there is at all like Lakewood was, I'd rather reschedule than risk being caught outside in it.

    I doubt I will make it as I am leaving conn. on Tuesday and do not know what I will face when I get home. I love this book and would love to be there but doubtful at this time.

    I will be there if I am in town. Maybe back in Conn again. Exact dates uncertain. I have already read this book and own a copy. Hope to be able to discuss this classic!
