Kathleen Koch spent much of her childhood on the Mississippi Gulf Cost, where on August 29, 2005, entire towns were reduced to shoulder-high rubble by Katrina’s roaring winds and unprecedented thirty-plus-foot storm serge. As a CNN correspondent at that time, she was assigned to cover the storm and its aftermath. Little did she know that this assignment became a very personal one. Kathleen reported form the sites of once-beautiful homes - including her own - stripped to their concrete pads. Despite her two award-winning documentaries and countless reports on Mississippi’s recovery for CNN, it is Kathleen’s inspiring new book Rising from Katrina: How My Mississippi Hometown Lost It All and Found What Mattered that truly takes us on a journey of human triumph. The catastrophic hurricane may have devastated the landscape but not the hearts and souls of the communities. Kathleen and I will be discussing a story of bravery and resilience of the Gulf Coast residents coming together as a community of one, and her own personal path to recovery. Please call 347.327.9995 on Tuesday Sept 28th from 10-11am U.S. CDT to join Kathleen and I live on the air with your questions and personal stories.
