We’re back! After much deliberation and reviewing of the survey results (you can still take it here: http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/YSK9YD2), we have changed the date and time of our meetings.
Instead of the third Sunday of every month, our meetings will be the first Thursday of every month. Our first meeting back will be June 2nd. I don’t know a better way to kick off an amazing weekend (Elkfest! Artfest!) then by hanging out with lovely people discussing an awesome book!
“The true story of one family, caught between America’s two biggest policy disasters: the war on terror and the response to Hurricane Katrina.
Abdulrahman and Kathy Zeitoun run a house-painting business in New Orleans. In August of 2005, as Hurricane Katrina approaches, Kathy evacuates with their four young children, leaving Zeitoun to watch over the business. In the days following the storm he travels the city by canoe, feeding abandoned animals and helping elderly neighbors. Then, on September 6th, police officers armed with M-16s arrest Zeitoun in his home. Told with eloquence and compassion, Zeitoun is a riveting account of one family’s unthinkable struggle with forces beyond wind and water.”
