About the Event

Williamstown Public Library 150th Anniversary Film Series

Location: Clark Art Institute Auditorium

Fahrenheit 451 (Francois Truffaut, 1966, 112 minutes)

Fahrenheit 451 is a celebration of readers and all that it might mean to be a reader in the most profound sense. Without readers, in this world at least, there would be no books. Adapted from the Ray Bradbury novel and directed by Francois Truffaut, Fahrenheit 451 imagines a future society that has banned all reading material. The job of the firemen is to keep the fires at the temperature that paper burns. And, then, one of the firemen meets a book-loving girl, and he begins to rethink his work and his whole world.

This event is free. Accessible seats are available; for information, call 413-549-0524

Williamstown's Public Library is grateful to the Clark for honoring the library's 150th anniversary by sponsoring this film series about the transformative power of books and reading.
