Author(s): KH Pathways
On August 29, 2005, Hurricane Katrina’s monstrous winds and surging waters overwhelmed the protected levees around the low-lying areas of New Orleans, Louisiana. Drowned City touches on tales of selflessness, heroism, and courage as well as incompetence, racism, and criminality—after more than 1,800 people lost their lives and property damage topped $100 billion. A graphic novel, written and illustrated by Don Brown, the book captures both the tragedy and triumph of one of the worst natural disasters in American history.
