It is said that everyone who lived through Hurricane Katrina and the floods that followed has a tale of horror to tell.

But few can compare to the events that took place at Memorial Hospital, where as many as 34 patients died.

It's the story that's being told now in the new book by Pulitzer Prize winning author Sheri Fink, Five Days at Memorial: Life and death in a storm ravaged hospital, and she joins the Eyewitness Morning News to talk about the book as well as a special presentation at the Jewish Community Center, November 20. For more information, call (504) 897-0143.
