Chautauqua – Nikola Tesla

September 10 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm

About the performer and performance (click for more at History Comes Alive)…

Portrayed by Ian Ruskin.
Nikola Tesla has been called many things: wizard, showman, prophet, charlatan, magician, and Father of the 20th Century – perhaps even of the 21st. He was a prophet dishonored in his own time, but revered in ours. Now he’s a rock star icon for billionaires, cyberpunks, and inventors who are still fiddling with everyday machines in their basements and garages. A car, a rock band, and a unit of magnetic measurement have been named after him.

The Transylvania Reinventing American Series includes Benjamin Franklin, Hedy Lamarr, Thomas Edison, and Nikola Tesla.

Chautauqua performances are made possible by the Friends of the Library.  Proceeds from Friends’ memberships and from book sales help enhance and support library services by underwriting interesting and entertaining events for all ages.  Won’t you be a Friend?
