Penn State

Kevin Cannon - Professor of Chemistry, Penn State Abington

Book Title: Fahrenheit 451

Author: Ray Bradbury

Book Description:

I believe that recent events in this country and the suppression of dissenting ideas in the name of political correctness make this novel an important book for our university. I'm sure that there are probably copies of this book currently in the University Libraries system, but I believe both the historical and contemporary significance of this novel will be encouraged by more faculty, which will necessitate the need for more available copies.
