Elizabeth Rosner presents and signs Electric City

Book Soup

8818 Sunset Blvd., Los Angeles, CA 90069

7:00pm

Upstate New York, at the confluence of the great Hudson River and its mighty tributary the Mohawk --from this stunning landscape came the creation of a new world of science. In 1887, Thomas Edison moved his Edison Machine Works here and in 1892, it became the headquarters of a major manufacturing company, giving the town its nickname: Electric City.   The peak of Autumn, 1919: The pull of scientific discovery brings Charles Proteus Steimetz, a brilliant mathematician and recent arrival from Ellis Island, to town. His ability to capture lightning in a bottle earns him the title "Wizard of Electric City." Barely four feet tall with a deeply curving spine, Steinmetz's physical deformity belies his great intellect. Allied with his Mohawk friend Joseph Longboat and his adopted eleven-year-old granddaughter Midget, the advancements he makes in Electric City will, quite simply, change the world.

The peak of Autumn, 1965: Sophie Levine, the daughter of a company man, one of the many scientists working at The Company, whose electric logo can be seen from everywhere in town. Her family escaped Europe just before World War II, leaving behind a wake of annihilation and persecution. Ensconced in Electric City, Sophie is coming of age just as the town is gasping its last breaths. The town, and America as a whole, is on the cusp of great instability: blackouts, social unrest over Vietnam, and soon the advent of the seventies. Into her orbit drifts Henry Van Curler, the favored son of one of Electric City's founding Dutch families, as well as Martin Longboat, grandson of Joseph Longboat. This new generation of Electric City will face both the history of their town and their own uncertain future, struggling to bridge the gap between the old world and the new.   Electric City is a vital, pulsing, epic novel of America, of its great scientific ingenuity and its emotional ambition; one that frames the birth and evolution of its towns against the struggles of its indigenous tribes, the immigrant experience, a country divided, and the technological advancements that ushered in the modern world.

Live, the band

House of Blues Sunset Strip

West Hollywood, CA 90069

7:30pm

In 1994, the band Live emerged as the preeminent post-grunge musical act. It'd be hard to find a rock fan’s CD collection that didn’t include Live’s massively successful Throwing Copper, an album that sold eight million copies and topped the Billboard Top 200 chart. With the exception of a recent hiatus, the band has been touring since 1990. Beginning with club concerts, the quartet eventually became one of the hottest rock tickets in the mid-1990s. Their minimalist stage show allowed Live to focus on providing a straight-ahead rock experience – with a clean, crisp sound. Lead singer Ed Kowalczyk, who left the band in 2009, delivered lyrics with an extensive vocal range and intense passion. His departure paved the way for current frontman Chris Shinn, who performed with the band on the Summerland Tour 2013 for 35 concert dates throughout the U.S.
