Rocco brings his California Art Works tour to Los Angeles today, which is also home to one of our favorite authors, Ray Bradbury. Bradbury's visionary novel, Fahrenheit 451, was one of the first books chosen for the NEA initiative, The Big Read. In this video, Bradbury -- a 2004 National Medal of Arts recipient -- talks about the importance of reading and the power of art. The video was created for The Big Read initiative, which encourages communities across the country to share in the joy and enlightenment of literature.
