Ray Bradbury Square Will Be Dedicated Today Outside Central Library
Downtown's magnificent Central Library was one of prolific author Ray Bradbury's favorite places in Los Angeles, and today Ray Bradbury Square will be dedicated steps from the building in honor of the late sci-fi scribe.
Expected to attend the public 2 p.m. ceremony at the corner of 5th and Flower streets are actor Joe Mantegna, Bradbury’s daughter Sue Bradbury Nixon, literary friend Steven Paul Leiva, Councilmembers Jose Huizar and Paul Koretz, and others, according to a newsletter issued by Huizar's office.
Huizar proposed the idea, which was supported by Nixon, who said her father would be honored.
