June 10 @ 1 pm - Lunch 'N Books: The Last Days of Night by Graham Moore
Join us on June 10 at 1:00 p.m. as we discuss The Last Days of Night by Graham Moore. New York, 1888. Gas lamps still flicker in the city streets, but the miracle of electric light is in its infancy. The person who controls the means to turn night into day will make history—and a vast fortune. A young untested lawyer takes a case that seems impossible to win. His client, George Westinghouse, has been sued by Thomas Edison over a billion-dollar question: Who invented the light bulb and holds the right to power the country? In obsessive pursuit of victory, Paul crosses paths with Nikola Tesla, an eccentric, brilliant inventor who may hold the key to defeating Edison.
Location: East Meadow Public Library, 1886 Front St., East Meadow, NY
