Author Julia Scheeres, right, and Thom Bogue recently spoke at the Avid Reader about her book, “A Thousand Lives: The Untold Story of Jonestown,” and his memories of the remote South American camp of the Peoples Temple where 918 people were killed or committed suicide one day in November 1978. Bogue, then a teenager and now vice mayor of Dixon, was one of the relatively few survivors. Scheeres’ critically praised book draws on previously unavailable recordings and records from the temple, which once had a major presence in San Francisco. They talk about it today on Davisville.
