Seattle Times science reporter Sandi Doughton has written the definitive book on what is expected to be the biggest earthquake in the continental United States, one that some scientists argue may be overdue. Bainbridge Island author Bruce Barcott will lead a discussion with Sandi Doughton on her new book, "Full Rip 9.0: The Next Big Earthquake in the Pacific Northwest." In "Full Rip 9.0," Doughton delves into the fascinating and often terrifying world of "The Big One." She introduces readers to the scientists who are dedicated to understanding the way the earth moves and describes what patterns can be identified and how prepared (or not) people are in the region's urban centers of Seattle, Portland, and Vancouver.
