And then they were gone: teenagers of peoples temple
April 16, 2021 - 2:00pm-3:00pm (ended)

The Peoples Temple is notorious for the way it ended—mass death in a jungle in Guyana. Few people realize that half of those who died in Jonestown were in their twenties or younger; one-third under eighteen. Judy Bebelaar got to know the kids of the San Francisco Temple. They were vibrant, talented, full of spunk. Bebelaar brings out their stories, sometimes in their own words, in the book she wrote with fellow teacher Ron Cabral, And Then They Were Gone: Teenagers of Peoples Temple from High School to Jonestown. Join us for an online return to that fascinating and turbulent time. A discussion follows a reading from the book.
