Book Signing: When the Watcher ShakesBook Signing: When the Watcher Shakes by local author Tim Huguenin

Wednesday, July 27th

5:30 pm

Charles St. entrance foyer


Join local author Tim Huguenin for a book signing on Wednesday, July 27th from 5:30 pm until 6:30 pm in the library's Charles St. entrance foyer. Huguenin's first novel, When the Watcher Shakes has just been published and is about a traveler's encounter with a small Appalachian town's religious sect. Kirkus Reviews calls it a "deceptively mild tale about a walled city that turns overtly scary before it's over."


Tim's book will also be the Pinedale Literary Society's August read—pick up a signed copy before reading and discussing it at their next meeting in September.

The Yellowstone Hotspot: Past, Present and FutureThe Yellowstone Hotspot: Past, Present and Future

A lecture by Dr. Robert B. Smith

Tuesday, August 16th

6 pm

The Lovatt Room


Yellowstone National Park is a “geologic park,” an active volcano and a giant caldera. But contrary to the commonly reported hazard, Yellowstone’s risk of geologic activity is in the possibility of large magnitude 7+ earthquakes (such as the magnitude 7.3 1959 Hebgen Lake earthquake that took the lives of 28 people), not volcanic eruptions. Using new evidence such as seismic images and GPS measurements, Distinguished Research Professor Robert Smith will discuss how Yellowstone is underlain by a partially molten magma reservoir only 2-3 miles deep and will illustrate how ground uplift of several inches per year is occurring. Don't miss this opportunity to acquire science based knowledge about geologic risk in Wyoming.


Dr. Robert B. Smith is considered to be one of the top geophysics experts in the world. He is a Distinguished Research Professor and Emeritus Professor of Geophysics and Geology at the University of Utah. He is also a Coordinating Scientist at the Yellowstone Volcano Observatory and a Fellow of the American Geophysical Union and Geological Society of America.
