Can tsunamis produce positive outcomes? Recently published Hawai’i Tsunamis, authored by Barbara Muffler and the Pacific Tsunami Museum, explores stories and images from the 1946 and 1960 tsunamis that impacted East Hawai’i.

Beyond exploring the tsunami events, the book provides human and visual testimony of not only devastation and loss, but also resilience, strength, and compassion.

Muffler will share the stories and images from the book on Monday, Nov 9 at the Lyman Museum.

The event will run from 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. Copies of the book will be available for purchase, and Muffler will remain on hand to sign the text.

Admission to the Lyman Museum is free to members and $3 for non-members.


To learn more, contact the museum by calling 935-5021 or visit the Lyman Museum website.
