Zeitoun
Author
Dave Eggers
Review
I didn't watch many of the news reports of Hurricane Katrina-too upsetting. This book gave a unique perspective about that disaster that was uplifting and incredibly frustrating. I am angry at how horribly people from New Orleans were treated by those that were supposed to provide assistance. I hope our country has learned from all that went wrong.   Library Catalog
