Communities hit by Hurricane Katrina are still trying to reconstruct and one group of New Orleans writers has found a way to make a difference. The New Orleans Haiku Society has recently published, Katrina – Ku: Storm Poems.
From imagery of downed power lines to the blue FEMA tarp covered roofs, this book is a tribute to a once vibrant city. As I know one of the poets, I’ve been following the development of the book and am excited to see it finally come together.
If you have $5 bucks to spare please consider purchasing a copy. Proceeds from the sale will benefit various art groups in New Orleans. To learn more visit Katrina-Ku.
Hope everyone has a weekend filled with books!
