On Saturday morning, as shoppers strolled down Brand Boulevard in Glendale, many noticed a group of people filling the Mystery and Imagination Bookstore. A few peeked in and asked what the excitement was about. “Ray Bradbury is coming,” said one of the patrons. “He will be signing books.” More often than not that was enough to get those curious on-lookers into the store. More than 200 people lined the aisles of the store and everyone had at least one Bradbury book in hand.

Valley View by Fereva I experienced one of those rare occasions last weekend- when fascinating moments came together in a spontaneous manner, and for three nights running I attended several amazing events. Doncha' love it when the great stuff just comes together- especially if you need to get out of the doldrums and into the mood? The great mood, that is. First, last Friday evening, literary icon Ray Bradbury spoke at my alma mater, UC Santa Barbara. Now I know in La Cañada Flintridge where folk fuss over who's tops- UCLA or USC, this will sound like heresy: But ultimately, I bailed to UCSB.
