The Lower 9th Ward

Sara Remi Fields

Last year, NPR shared a story on the podcast This American Life about how New Orleans, and specifically, the Lower 9th Ward, is coping with the effects of Hurricane Katrina 10 years later. Using the transcript from that podcast as well as other information I found, I created the book Ramifications. This book aims to show how events that can destroy some lives can barely touch or interfere with the lives of others, and how we must have compassion for others.
