I’m really glad I’m writing about lightbulbs today. I’m also really glad human beings are going to talk about lighbulbs tonight. Author and historian Ernest Freeberg will present the glowing story of the modern age tonight at The Filson Historical Society with his new book, ‘The Age of Edison: Electric Light and the Invention of Modern America’. Rediscover the lightbulb starting at 6pm.
Thomas Edison, the man with over 1000 invention patents, has a birthday this month. Celebrate at his Lousiville home on Saturday with a birthday cake shaped like a light bulb. Yes, you read that correctly.
