Chapter 16 opens with Bradbury’s award-winning “The Electric Grandmother” adaptation for NBC’s Project Peacock 1982 special and another adaptation of “All Summer in a Day,” later rebroadcast as part of the PBS Wonderworks series. Bradbury’s summer 1982 return to Washington, D.C. included a lecture at the Library of Congress, time with Senator Robert Packwood on Capitol Hill, and an unscheduled trip to the White House, where he received a tour hosted by the press office and discussed his support for Reagan-era NASA initiatives. His support of the Reagan administration’s policies was selective, focusing on economic policies and long-range space exploration planning.
