Marking the evacuation anniversary on C-SPAN this Sunday

This Sunday on C-SPAN from 5:20-6:20pm Central Time:

Douglas Brinkley: The Great Deluge: Hurricane Katrina, New Orleans, and the Mississippi Gulf Coast
Ken Foster: author of The Dogs Who Found Me
Mark Schleifstein: co-author of Path of Destruction: The Devastation of New Orleans and the Coming Age of Superstorms
Tony Dunbar: Tubby Meets Katrina: A Tubby Dubonnet Novel
and reporters from the New Orleans Times-Picayune

I can't imagine how I'll get a word in with this group, but there I am. It's all part of a program put together by the New Orleans Press Club to raise money for their scholarship fund. We'll be at the Sheraton signing books from 2-4. And from 4:15 to 5:15 C-SPAn will be broadcasting another panel, including Chris Rose, Jed Horne and Sarah Inman.

Privately, we'll all be thinking about exactly what we were doing a year earlier.
