On Tuesday, July 27, Amoeba will present a book signing, talk and 3-D presentation with Brian May and Elena Vidal for their book, A Village Lost and Found from 7-9pm at the Downtown Independent in Los Angeles! You no doubt know of Brian May for his tenure as lead guitarist in a little band called Queen. He is less known for his work as an astrophysicist (!) -- and his new book, along with co-author Vidal, a photographic historian, brings together a collection of stereoscopic photos called "Scenes in Our Village" by T.R. Williams.
