The Director of Tulane University’s Institute on Water Resources Law & Policy has written a wonderful introduction to founder Sandy Rosenthal’s debut book Words Whispered in Water; Why the Levees Broke in Hurricane Katrina.
The introduction, written by Mark S. Davis, is featured in Water Alternatives.
Here are some excerpts from the introduction:
“…Rosenthal points out, if we move on before actually learning and applying the lessons taught in tragedy’s classroom, then we do ourselves and those who come after us a grave disservice. …. Her path to becoming an influential citizen investigator is an important part of this story since how well and how safely we live is ultimately a matter of how much responsibility we take for making our communities work….”
Rosenthal’s book, the recipient of three awards is published by Mango in August 2020.
