My friend and author Tom Piazza (he is also one of the writers for the HBO post-Katrina series Treme), posted a fantastic article link on Facebook that discusses book clubs' selections for commemorating the Katrina anniversary. To be specific, the article lists some essentials of a Hurricane Katrina library:
- City of Refuge by Tom Piazza (historical fiction)
- 1 Dead In Attic by Chris Rose (non-fiction)
- Nine Lives by Dan Baum (non-fiction that reads as fiction)
- Zeitoun by Dave Eggars (the Pulpwood Queens August selection, now in paperback)
I plan to attempt to put together a full Katrina reading list for the August meeting for anyone who wants to explore the topic further.
