Tsunami Connections Across the Pacific
Lori Dengler recounts personal, geologic and cultural connections between Northern California and Japan. Dengler was in Japan six weeks before the 2011 earthquake and participated in a post tsunami survey team six weeks afterwards. She helped to connect a tsunami debris boat found in Crescent City to a Japanese high school and recently co-authored a bilingual children’s book about the boat and how it connected high school students in the two countries. This talk is a preview of the address she will give on March 11 at Tokyo's National Museum.
