Join the launch of UCSC's ten-part documentary podcast, Stories from the Epicenter, which explores the experience and memory of the Loma Prieta Earthquake in Santa Cruz County through oral history records and interviews with current residents of Santa Cruz and Watsonville.

The event will include a moderated discussion with UCSC's podcast producers followed by a Q&A with the audience. The MAH's own Marla Novo, Exhibitions & Programs Director, will be one of the panelists for this event. Bring your questions and feel free to browse our Loma Prieta information before attending,

Once you are registered, Zoom login information will be provided the day of the event. UCSC Zoom meetings now require Zoom 5.0 or newer. Check your version and update to the latest, most secure version.
