Presentation and Book Signing

Socializing at 5:30 p.m.
Lecture starts at 6:00 p.m.

A visionary and controversial quest for water made modern Los Angeles possible, but the failure of the St. Francis Dam on March 12, 1928, the worst American civil engineering failure of the 20th century, was a horrific reminder of human limits -- a lesson that is all but forgotten today.  

In Floodpath: The Deadliest Man-Made Disaster of 20th Century America and the Making of Modern Los Angeles, Jon Wilkman, an Emmy-Award winning documentary filmmaker and author of books about Los Angeles, revisits a deluge that claimed nearly 500 lives. 

Book will be available for purchase.  www.stfrancisdamdisaster1928.com
