The 1868 Hayward Fault Earthquake: Dinner and Illustrated Talk By Historian Richard Schwartz
Sponsored by Builders Booksource, Berkeley
Did you ever wonder what it is like to be in largest earthquake unleashed by the Hayward Fault? Richard Schwartz will offer first-hand accounts of people who lived through the October 21, 1868 Hayward Fault Earthquake. Their stories are riveting. Schwartz will show many photos and illustrations to accompany the history of what happened in the Bay Area before, during, and after the 1868 Hayward earthquake. As the USGS predicts that these maximum eruptions occur on the Hayward Fault, on average, every 140 years, this talk is a must-see, must-hear event for anyone who wants to know what may be in store for us at any moment. Join us for a memorable and important illustrated talk by Richard Schwartz who has lectured on this subject to the “1868 Earthquake Alliance” at Mission San Jose on the “Commemoration of the 140th Anniversary of 1868 Hayward Fault Earthquake” in 2008 and at the Associated Bay Area Governments headquarters in Oakland.
