On June 28, 2021, Readers Favorite released a review of founder Sandy Rosenthal’s debut book, Words Whispered in Water: Why the Levees Broke in Hurricane Katrina.
Here is an excerpt of the review written by Francis Mont for Readers Favorite.
“The information had been mostly unknown to me and is shockingly convincing about the book’s main theme: powerful players in the drama used every dirty trick to misdirect blame from themselves, even going to the length of blaming the victims. In the era of post-truth social media hysteria, I thoroughly enjoyed reading an objectively reported investigation into a tragedy that should never have happened….”
On its website, Readers Favorite is described as “owned and operated by authors for authors. Our staff and nearly all our 1,000+ reviewers are authors who have come together to provide fellow authors with a valuable set of resources to help them succeed.”
Levees.org Founder Sandy Rosenthal will be a featured guest and speaker at the 2021 New Orleans Book Festival at Tulane University’s uptown campus.
Rosenthal is selected to present on her debut book “Words Whispered in Water: Why the Levees Broke in Hurricane Katrina.”
A signed letter from co-chairs Cheryl Landrieu and Walter Isaacson states:
“We would like to invite you to join us as a participating author at this exciting event… Book signings will be scheduled after your presentation… Author information will also be prominently featured on our website. We would be honored to count you among our festival authors in 2021.”
The 2021 New Orleans Book Festival will feature a multi-day literary celebration including prominent national authors participating in readings, moderated panel discussions and keynote lectures. Festival planners plan to engage the local community in many specially curated events that will elevate New Orleans as a convener of important literary works.
After eight month of preparation, founder Sandy Rosenthal launched her first podcast episode of Beat the Big Guys on June 21, 2021.
The show is designed to help citizens-at-large who see a problem in their town or community but may feel helpless to do anything about it.
Each episode will feature major celebrities and experts, where Rosenthal will provide free and inexpensive tools to help her listeners Beat the Big Guys.
Rosenthal’s first guest is Lt Gen Russel Honore, who brought order to New Orleans when the Army Corps of Engineers’ levees broke in August of 2005. General Honore was brought back into the spotlight at the first of this year. One week after the January 6 Capitol insurrection, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi appointed the General to review the security and infrastructure at the historic building. Honoré and his team finished the review in March. Now, they are urging Congress to pass emergency legislation to fund recommended security enhancements.
