Please join the Friends as they welcome veteran journalist Peter A. Galuszka, author of Thunder on the Mountain: Death at Massey and the Dirty Secrets Behind Big Coal, on Friday, April 4 at 7 pm in the Davenport Special Collections Room of the Main Library.


Having spent years covering energy around the world, Galuszka explores the these topics in his book, a tragic story of greed, deadly labor practices and a ruthless disregard for the environment.  It focuses on Massey Energy's Upper Big Branch mine disaster, which, on April 5, 2010, became the worst coal mining disaster tragedy in nearly half a century in the United States. 


The program is free and the public is invited.
