Grand Park’s SPRINGTIME READS begins a season of reading and writing activities creating interesting places and spaces for bookworms of all ages.

Kicking off with THE BRADBURY ROOM, a partnership with the City of LA’s Department of Cultural Affairs, and the nation-wide The Big Read, the [type]written word comes to life to celebrate L.A.’s own Ray Bradbury and his seminal work Fahrenheit 451. Grand Park’s Olive Court transforms to an installation of DIY typewriting inspired by Bradbury’s own experience writing Fahrenheit 451 in the basement typing room of UCLA’s Lawrence Clark Powell Library in 1952.

All are invited to channel their inner Bradbury and type away, prompted by quotes from the famous book, among Grand Park’s trees, fountain, and spring breezes.
