Kim Tomsic will be joining us to speak about her new book “Guitar Genius: How Les Paul Engineered the Solid-Body Electric Guitar and Rocked the World.” “Guitar Genius” is the story of how Les Paul created the world’s first solid- body electric guitar, countless other inventions that changed modern music, and one truly epic career in rock and roll. How do you make a microphone? An electric guitar? How do you become a legendary inventor? A few tools, a lot of curiosity, and an endless faith in what is possible. Featuring richly detailed, dynamic illustrations by Brett Helquist, this unforgettable biography will resonate with inventive readers young and old.
