Because Science, That's Why: Visions of Nikola Tesla
If you fucking love science—or graphic novels—or wildly successful self-funded publishing projects—then Elizabeth Haidle is someone you should probably meet. The Taos-based illustrator jets down to Barelas tomorrow to read from and sign Mind Afire: The Visions of Nikola Tesla at 7pm. You know Tesla—the revolutionary wunderkind of electricity whose A/C (alternating current) famously battled against and eventually won out over Thomas Edison’s inferior D/C (direct current) for world domination. And who invented those lightning-spitting Tesla coil things. And who died broke and talking to pigeons. What I’m saying is, it’s a helluva story. Concocted in partnership with west-coast author/editor Abigail Samoun, Mind Afire is an 80-page full-color graphic novel bankrolled entirely by a blockbuster crowdfunding campaign. Come to the Tannex (1417 Fourth Street SW) to hear about the talented minds and business savvy that gave rise to the book. Stay for the irresistible charm of Brave New Burro, whose quirky brass melodies travel through time and space to bring you a sound that’s as delightful as it is unexpected. All this for just a five-shekel suggested donation. Tannex • Fri Mar 14 • 7pm • $5 suggested donation • ALL-AGES! • View on Alibi calendar
