I took the picture above at the Alt Car Expo last December when author Sherry Boschert gave a copy of her book, Plug-In Hybrids: The Cars That Will Recharge America, to Lee Iacocca (and that's Dr. Andy Frank in the middle). A lot of people who aren't Mr. Iacocca have paid for a copy of Boschert's book; it's in its second printing. If you're one of them, or just want to know more about plug-in hybrids, you might be able to catch Boschert during her speaking tour this summer. She'll be visiting a lot of places in the Bay Area, but also Wisconsin, Washington, D.C., and Ohio, among other places. I've put her current schedule after the jump and you can keep an eye on her website for updates.
