Richard Munson -- "Tesla"

Richard Munson will speak about and sign his new book, Tesla: Inventor of the Modern, on Wednesday, June 20th at 7:30pm.

About the Book:
Nikola Tesla invented the radio, robots, and remote control. When his first breakthrough — alternating current, the basis of the electric grid — pitted him against Thomas Edison's direct-current, Tesla's superior technology prevailed. Even so, he has been largely overlooked by history. Who was this genius? Drawing on letters, technical notebooks, and other primary sources, Tesla pieces together the bizarre personal life and mental habits of the enigmatic and underappreciated inventor.

Vouchers to attend are $5 and are good for $5 off the author’s featured book or a purchase the day of the event. Vouchers can be purchased in advance at the store, over the phone, or at the door. Readers Guild Members can reserve seats for any in-store event.
