Dandelion wine

  • That Waukegan is long gone, but here and there reminders linger. The ravines that serve as a forbidding set for his autobiographical novel Dandelion Wine are still there, not far from a small park that bears Bradburys name.

  • Dandelion Wine-- first a short story in 1953 and then a novel in 1957 — may not wield as much name recognition as Fahrenheit 451, but it is the late Ray Bradburys most personal work.
  • (WAMU)
  • Celebrating the sweetness of summer, as if it's packed into one day like sweet wine in bottle that's uncorked and poured out for all to enjoy, the Ray Bradbury Dandelion Wine Fine Arts Festival takes place June 2 at Bowen Park in Waukegan.
  • (Chicago Sun-Times)
  • One of the nations best-loved writers, Bradbury was known for The Martian Chronicles, The Illustrated Man, Something Wicked This Way Comes and Dandelion Wine, among hundreds of other books, plays, film and TV scripts and poems.

  • Genesee St., was named in honor of Bradbury's Waukegan doppelganger from his semi-autobiographical novel "Dandelion Wine." Ray Douglas Bradbury arrived in the world on Aug. 22, 1920, at 11 S. St. James Ave.

  • No other details were immediately available.

  • In his best stories and in his autobiographical novel, "Dandelion Wine" (1957), he gave voice to both the joys and fears of childhood, as well as its wonders. "Dandelion Wine" begins before dawn on the first day of summer.

  • 1957: Bradbury releases the autobiographical novel Dandelion Wine, a loosely connected series of short stories about childhood in the Midwest. He fashioned the fictional Green Town after his Illinois hometown.
  • (YAHOO!)
  • When a carnival comes to town, the main characters believe it to be something evil. I was forced to read Dandelion Wine as a freshman in high school. At the time, I didnt realize Bradburys brilliance. I felt Dandelion Wine was boring when I first read it.
  • (YAHOO!)
