The Bath School Disaster (novel) Petaluma, CA
In 1927, Andrew Kehoe blew up the only school in Bath, Michigan, killing 45 people. It remains the biggest school bombing in US history. This novel is a fictionalization of that event told by one of the victims, a World War I veteran who’s also a ghost.
