February 25, 2017, 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM @ Grayslake Heritage Center & Museum
On Saturday, February 25 at 2 p.m., the museum welcomes local author John Wasik, who will discuss his new book, "Lightning Strikes: Nikola Tesla, Creativity and the Soul of Innovation." Wasik will tell the compelling story of how Tesla created radio, the modern electrical grid, robotics and wireless/remote control. Wasik uses Tesla’s life as a lens to show how people can spark their own creativity and innovation. February 25 will also be the last day to view the museum’s exhibition Maps, Motors & Memories, which explores local service stations, gas stations, dealerships and automotive milestones.
