South Pasadena Poet Laureate Ron Koertge pens poem honoring Bradbury

South Pasadena Poet Laureate Ron Koertge has written a poem to accompany the stained glass window installation planned for the Bradbury Conference Room of the South Pasadena Public Library. With “In Memoriam,” Koerte recalls the advice the author once offered over a cup of coffee after a long day of conference presentations: “Mess around after you get your work done,” Bradbury suggested. 

Koertge’s poem and the stained glass window designed by Tim Carey Studios are just two ways the library continues to honor Ray Bradbury. They also hold a significant collection of memorabilia and photographs related to the author, who frequented so many of the libraries near his home in Cheviot Hills.
