Rich with vivid personal stories of lumber tycoons, loggers, volcanologists, and conservationists, Eruption delivers a spellbinding narrative built from the testimonies of those closest to the disaster, and an epic tale of our fraught relationship with the natural world.

Are you wistful for the days of your youth when adults would read out loud to you? Well, we are. Join us for Grown-Up Story Time. It’s just what it sounds like: we’re gonna read to you while you enjoy an adult beverage. Short stories, excerpts from soon-to-be-released novels, and other favorites; we might even throw in some poetry, who knows, we’re playing this by ear. We’ve even got a super-secret meeting room. Meet in the Pub. All are welcome (well, all adults). Bonus: we’ll provide the popcorn!
