Join us for an evening with Henry Fountain!
Henry Fountain has been a reporter and editor at the New York Times for two decades, writing about science for most of that time. From 1999 to 2009 he wrote "Observatory" a weekly column in the Science Times section.
His book "The Great Quake", tells a compelling tale about the 1964 Alaska earthquake - the largest earthquake in North American recorded history - and the geologist who was relentless in his pursuit for answers to explain how the disaster took place.
His book brings the earthquake to life through vivid imagery and detail, and demonstrates the brute force of nature, an uncontrollable power that can wreak heavy damage on the places we call home.
A book signing will follow his talk. A limited number of books will be available for sale.
