  7. General Book Club: The Age of Edison

    January 8, 2018, 7:00 PM - 8:00 PM @ DeKalb Public Library, Bilder Family Meeting Room

    Today most Americans do not think twice when flipping a switch or pushing a button to use all of the modern conveniences that are part of life in the 21st century. But Americans in the late 19th century experienced excitement and wonder when they saw electric light for the first time. Join us for a discussion of Ernest Freeberg’s book The Age of Edison: Electric Light and the Invention of Modern America. Freeberg traces the progress of the electric light and how it changed the pace of city life and turned night into day. Copies of the book are available in the Adult Services department. For more information contact Teresa at (815) 756-9568 ext. 2114 or email teresai@dkpl.org.
