The Ray Bradbury Windows Are Free to See in South Pas
The chilling stories from our childhoods, and the thrilling tales we've heard as adults, often spring from various All Hallows Eve legends, the old yarns that stretch back centuries.
But, on occasion? A spirited and soul-enriching classic arrives during our lifetime, one that delivers all of the Halloween charm and fun we want.
Ray Bradbury's "The Halloween Tree," from 1972, has become that modern-day must-read for many of the author's devotees, a book that is returned to each October.
Mr. Bradbury was famously a firm friend to libraries during his storied lifetime. He was also a fan of South Pasadena's small-town quaintness, a place that eagerly reciprocated the friendship in numerous ways.
Theater fans will remember his plays taking centerstage at the Fremont Centre Theatre, a venue that's a short walk from the library, which is also home to the Ray Bradbury Collection and the Ray Bradbury Conference Room.
The new stained glass windows grace this very room, a sweet and satisfying tribute to the imaginative, wise, and empathetic author, a man who spent much of his life writing right here in LA.
See them in detail and learn more about the colorful works below. The windows are now free to view at any time, and will be lit "Monday through Saturday," shared the South Pasadena Public Library.
