Tulane University to feature Sandy Rosenthal in Fall Book Festival Virtual Discussion

Tulane University has invited Levees.org founder Sandy Rosenthal to be a featured book author in its ongoing and very popular New Orleans Book Festival Virtual Series which presents discussions on a variety of relevant topics.

Rosenthal will be counted as a “highlighted participant in this Fall Virtual Series.”

In a signed letter from Walter Isaacson and Cheryl Landrieu––co-chairs of the New Orleans Book Festival at Tulane University––they write to Rosenthal:  

“…Your new book, Words Whispered in Water: Why the Levees Broke in Hurricane Katrina, has particular relevancy to the current state of national affairs we are facing. We would be thrilled to have you participate in this series to speak on this topic, especially noting the anniversary of Hurricane Katrina. We can make every effort to accommodate your format preference, schedule and recommendation of moderator for the conversation…”

On Monday September 14,  the series will begin with a conversation with Tulane historian Andy Horowitz, Pulitzer Prize winning journalist Jarvis DeBerry and Book Festival co-chair and Walter Isaacson.

More details will be released next week about Rosenthal’s participation.

    Sandy, I found your org.name on NPR the other week, I thought this might be the place to mention something that has bothered me since Katrina. I saw pictures and video of water being discharged from large pumps to the other side of the levee effectively eroding the bank. The water needs to be released far from the dam to prevent this problem. Hope I am not the only one to notice this. I only have to deal with small trout ponds in the mountains but the effect is the same. Thanks for a place to spout my concerns. Mike
