On the 23rd January 2020 Jack Latham talked about the process he went through while creating his recent award winning book Parliament of Owls. His work started as a fascination behind the conspiracy theory towards Bohemian grove which is a club for the American Elite. He didn’t focus on just the camp itself, but also on the surrounding communities and those who are against the club. This allowed for wider audience engagement which means people are able to find out more about the secretive club.
