[tab title=”Details”]

When Mount St. Helens erupted on May 18, 1980, it was an unprecedented volcanic disaster, and it changed the way scientists, conservationists, and Washington residents treat the region’s towering mountains. Many know the hard facts behind that fateful morning, but less is known about the 57 people who died. Seattle-based author Steve Olson (Mapping Human History) tackles the human side of this catastrophe in Eruption. He’ll appear in conversation with Steve Scher (former Town Hall Scholar in Residence and KUOW host) for a look at the lives lostas well as those who survived―for a social, geological, and historical look at the original “big one.”
