In the introduction to the graphic novel version of his classic work FAHRENHEIT 451, author Ray Bradbury suggests that readers "should name the one book that he/she would most want to memorize and protect from any censors" and further consider "why it would be a valuable asset to be recited and remembered in the future."
So, what book would you choose? What text would you memorize and protect for posterity? (Take a deep breath! So much to choose from, we understand!) Join us this evening certainly to share your responses and perhaps to recite your chosen text--or excerpts of it--in the poetry slam to follow. Prizes will be awarded!
