Patrick Garner as “Mr. Edison” will be at the Clarence Dillon Public Library on Wednesday, August 20, 2014 at 7:00 pm for a fun-filled presentation about his life, his inventions and the lessons those inventions taught him! Children volunteer to join the “The Wizard of Menlo Park” onstage to act as his “Insomnia Squad.” All children are involved in this highly interactive presentation. Come meet the man with 1093 US Patents including the Phonograph, the Light Bulb, the Motion Picture Projector, the Universal Stock Ticker, the Alkaline Battery, Talking Dolls, Improved Cement Manufacturing, Electric Generators, the Electric Train, the Tattoo Pen, and Wax Paper.
