We all remember the horrifying images from the 2011 Japanese tsunami – but what happened afterward? Gretel Ehrlich, an acclaimed nature writer and student of Japanese culture, found out by spending nine months in the country as it struggled with the aftermath.
The result is her book “Facing the Wave: A Journey in the Wake of the Tsunami,” an unforgettable look at a country’s travail after an unimaginably destructive and powerful natural disaster.
Ehrlich discusses her book tonight on “Well Read,” the books and authors interview program on state public affairs channel TVW. The program airs at 7 and 10 p.m. tonight (Tuesday), and repeats at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday on Tacoma public television station KBTC. “Well Read” also airs Sunday on the UWTV channel – consult their schedule for times.
If you can’t wait, here’s the link to the program.
