Book Review: Drowned City: Hurricane Katrina and New Orleans

drowned_city.jpg

  As one of the most devastating natural disasters to hit US soil, Hurricane Katrina still haunts New Orleans to this day. Don Brown gives an excruciating account of the immense damage in  his book, Drowned City. Politically neutral but full of truth, Drowned City uses graphic depictions to reveal the very real emotions and actions of those who weathered the storm. West Lafayette Public Library Director Nick Schenkel has a review.
