hawaii-tsunamis-coverThe islands and coastlines of the Pacific and Indian oceans have been rocked by powerful seismic waves time and again during the past century.  This is certainly true for Hilo, which has been shaped physically, culturally, and economically by the tsunamis of 1946 and 1960.  But even cataclysmic events can have positive outcomes, as illustrated in a recently published, thoughtful book by Barbara Muffler and the Pacific Tsunami Museum, which Barbara shares with us this evening.

Hawai`i Tsunamis features compelling stories and images from these destructive events—human and visual testimony not only to devastation and loss but to the resilience, strength, and compassion of individuals and of the Hilo community as a whole.  Copies of Hawai`i Tsunamis are available for purchase, and Barbara will be happy to inscribe them.

Free to Lyman Museum members; $3 nonmembers.
Doors open at 6:30 p.m. for evening public programs.
