Reading with Steve Olson
Author Steve Olson will be reading from his book "Eruption: The Untold Story of Mount St. Helens" on Thursday, June 22nd at 7 pm.
“Olson intercuts stories of victims including David Johnston, the volcanologist who was monitoring the explosion, with an account of its impact on science—such as popularizing the use of lidar. With 1,500 potentially active volcanoes worldwide, this is an urgent reminder of the need for advances in the field.” — Nature
