Fahrenheit 3851

It is cooold outside (well, Vancouver-cold).  And it’s cooold in the library at St. George’s Junior School.  This got Mr. Weber and Ms. Walker talking about having a fire to warm up, and the conversation naturally shifted to the classic novel Fahrenheit 451, by Ray Bradbury.  This is a story about a futuristic American society where books are outlawed and “firemen” burn any that are found.  A big pile of burning books would certainly make our library nice and toasty, wouldn’t it?  (We kid, we kid . . .)

Check out a clip from the 1966 film adaptation below:

Can you imagine if you had no right to read?!
