Amanda Bath reads at Slocan Library

Bath will recount the story behind her book about the Johnson's Landing slide.

On Sunday at 1 p.m. at the Slocan Community Library, author Amanda Bath will share the story behind her book, Disaster in Paradise: The Landslides in Johnson’s Landing.

Her presentation is about the 2012 landslides, two natural disasters that devastated the community and made national headlines. Bath’s house was flattened by the first slide, and what remained of it was completely buried by the second.

Disaster in Paradise is the story of trauma and healing, but also of a community mourning and gradually rebuilding after the landslides that killed four people and destroyed six homes. Bath moved to Johnsons Landing from England in 1993. Please come out to welcome this author to the Slocan Valley as she shares her story.
