  1. Looking forward to reading the book
    being originally from new orleans and noticing something on the lj front page i had to take a look. I was hesitant at the fact that someone who is not from the southern areas affected would be doing something based on it however after reading a few of the posts I am eagerly looking forward to its release.

      Thanks. I really think of this book as a collaboration between myself and my experiences as a Red Cross volunteer and of course the seven wonderful, generous souls who allowed me to document their experiences.
