Author Jane Brox will be reading from her new book, “Brilliant: The Evolution of Artificial Light,” this Thursday, Sept. 9, at 7 p.m., at the Andover Bookstore, 89 Main Street. She is a marvelous writer, and in this book she takes on a subject that so surrounds us that most of us don’t think about it. It wasn’t every day that a person could flip a switch and see more. It still isn’t every day for many people. She tells a good story and asks provocative questions about how we organize our lives now and what “light” might look like in the future.
