Mock trial of character in 'Fahrenheit 451' set
JAMESTOWN -- The protagonist of Ray Bradbury's science fiction novel, "Fahrenheit 451," will be the defendant in a mock trial at 7 p.m. Tuesday in the Robert H. Jackson Center, 305 E. Fourth St.
At the conclusion, a panel of area residents will decide whether Guy Montag should be punished for crimes against the state. The event, part of the Chautauqua-Cattaraugus Library System's Big Read program, is free and open to the public.
"Our theater students and faculty have put together a first-class production that is both exciting and enlightening," said Randy Gadikian, director of the Daniel A. Reed Library at Fredonia State College. "Jamestown's own Judge [George] Panebianco will be presiding over a cast of Fredonia's best."
