How R.L. Stine Discovered Ray Bradbury

In the video embedded above, the great R.L. Stine explains how he discovered Ray Bradbury for the first time as a kid lost in the library.

The experience would spawn a life-long love of literature and help launch a long writing career. It’s a story that will warm the hearts of all the librarians and aspiring writers in the audience. You never know how a book can change somebody’s life.

Check it out: “Fabled scary author R.L. Stine recounts the time his mother dropped him off at the local library in his home town of Bexley, Ohio. As a child who only read comics, R.L. staggered around the shelves in confusion, bitter that the library didn’t stock his beloved reading material. A kindly librarian spotted his plight and approached, changing his life forever.”

If you liked that video, you should also watch how R. L. Stine explains the Gersberms meme.

Next week, MediabistroTV’s My First Big Break show will release a video interview with the novelist about the early days of his career.
