Will give a talk on his new book:
WHEN: Saturday, February 27, 2016, 2 PM

Jon Wilkman, an Emmy-Award winning documentary filmmaker and author of books about Los Angeles, revisits a deluge that claimed nearly 500 lives. Based on nearly 25 years of research and driven by eyewitness accounts, combining urban history and life-and-death drama with a technological detective story, Wilkman’s narrative reads like a thriller, grounded on historical fact. Floodpath will be published by Bloomsbury Press on January 5, 2016.
Book signing with the author will follow the lecture.
