#Kidlit4Japan Auction Daily Preview: Friday, 3/31 (65th Anniversary Edition)

Sorry if I’ve been slow to respond over the past couple of days—I’m fighting off a fever that has me pinned down to the bed for much of the day.

As the devastating and deadly force of tsunamis is on all our minds these days, it’s a good time to remember another Pacific tidal wave that struck exactly 65 years ago today. The Aleutian Islands Tsunami of 1946 caused deaths in Alaska and Hawaii and prompted the creation of the Pacific Tsunami Warning Center. That is the topic of Auction item #73, signed copies of Gail Langer Karwoski’s Tsunami: The True Story of an April Fool’s Day Disaster, our featured item of the day and an excellent way to introduce young readers to the topic.

Carry on, I’m going back to bed.

–Greg
