SummaryJoin us for a book group at the Magnolia Branch. Everyone is welcome. This month’s title is Eruption by Steve Olson. Steve has kindly agreed to join us in the discussion.
Book DescriptionThe Mount St Helens eruption was one of the largest in human history, depositing ash in eleven U.S. states and five Canadian providences, and causing more than one billion dollars in damage. It killed fifty-seven people, some as far as thirteen miles away from the volcano's summit. Shedding new light on the cataclysm, author Steve Olson interweaves the history and science behind this event with page-turning accounts of what happened to those who lived and those who died.
