Get juiced on clean transportation at the Winter Park library and find out just 'What Is the Electric Car?'


  • Jonathan Chen
If you’re one of the lucky ones who’s gotten to take a ride in a Tesla Model S, you know how exhilarating a ride in an electric vehicle can be. Or maybe you’ve seen the 2010 documentary What Is the Electric Car? and want to check one out for yourself. With the release of a companion book of the same name – consisting of essays about electric vehicles by people like Jay Leno, Ed Begley Jr., Larry Hagman and Fabio, among others – the folks promoting “EVs” as a viable alternative to internal combustion-fueled pollution-mobiles are taking their passion, well, on the road. Stop by the Winter Park Public Library to meet some of the authors (no names have been confirmed) and have them sign a copy of the book for you, then check out the Electric Driveway Party, where you’ll be able to get up close and personal with the cars of the future, which is actually the present.
