Author Richard Munson will discuss his latest book, Tesla: Inventor of the Modern. Drawing together details from letters, notebooks and other primary sources, the book reveals the personal life and mindset of an underappreciated genius--a man who drew up designs for the Internet, cell phones and wireless charging a century before their common use. His story is a reminder that technology can transcend the marketplace and that profit is not the only motivation for invention.
