Author and Documentary Film Producer Jon Wilkman will give a talk on his new book, Floodpath: The Deadliest Man Made Disaster of 20th Century America and the Making of Modern Los Angeles
WHERE: Old Town Newhall Library at Lyons Avenue and Main Street
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.
