On Saturday, Oct. 15, the electric car gets even. Kepler's Books is hosting a preview screening of "Revenge of the Electric Car," followed by a question-and-answer session with Jay Friendland from Plug In America and Dorian West from Tesla Motors.
The film explores the surge of global interest in electric cars, going behind doors at GM, Nissan, Tesla Motors, and Greg "Gadget" Abbott, an independent car converter who's been featured on the Discovery Channel.
Chris Paine, who directed this, is the son of Ward and Mary Paine of Portola Valley. In 2007, Almanac staff writer Marion Softky interviewed Chris in connection with his earlier opus, "Who Killed the Electric Car?".
The event starts at 7 p.m. at the bookstore at 1010 El Camino Real in Menlo Park. Tickets are $12 in advance; $16 at the door. Seating is limited, according to Kepler's, which is also offering a "buy one book, get a second book of equal or lesser value for 30 percent off" deal to attendees.
