SB County Museum: Dome Talks Speaker Series

July 16 is the final speaker in the series, Larry Burns, local author of Secret Inland Empire: A Guide to the Weird, Wonderful, and Obscure. Drawing inspiration and ideas from the heady mixture of sights, sounds, peoples, and places of the Inland Empire, Burns answers compelling questions, “How did the first McDonald’s perfect the taste that took over the globe?”, “Where can you go to receive the first messages from Mars and probe photographs sent to NASA?”, “How did an hourly employee from the Inland Empire invent Flaming Hot Cheetos?” and other stories that reveal the wacky history of our beloved region.
