John J. Fialka -- Car Wars: Rise, Fall, and Resurgence of the Electric Car
Mr. Fialka is a former staff reporter for The Wall Street Journal. He will discuss topics from his new book, Car Wars: The Rise, The Fall, and the Resurgence of the Electric Car, which portrays much of the history and potential for electric cars. The first two chapters are about the “Great Electric Car Race” between MIT and Caltech in 1968, that got people interested again in fooling around with electric cars.
