An effort is underway to honor one of Waukegan's favorite sons, the late science fiction pioneer Ray Bradbury.

Waukegan Public Library Executive Director Richard Lee said nearly all the details remain to be worked out beyond the basic idea -- a realistic statue or bust of Bradbury, who wrote evocatively of the fictional Green Town, a recognizable stand-in for his hometown. lRelated A history of Waukegan

The effort echoes the push for a statue memorializing another Waukegan legend, comedian Jack Benny, a radio and early TV star honored with a downtown statue in 2001.

Renaming the library would be a more fitting tribute.

Bradbury was a pretty shy man.
