Biloxi Library to host ‘Katrina’ book signing, talk

The Biloxi Library is hosting a book talk and signing with local author Dr. James Patterson Smith on Tuesday, Aug.  25, at 4:30 p.m.

Dr. Smith’s book “Hurricane Katrina:  the Mississippi Story” is rooted in a wealth of oral histories, and tells the dramatic but under-reported story of a people who confronted unprecedented devastation.  In often moving terms, the book addresses the Mississippi Gulf Coast’s arduous tasks handling a record-setting volume of debris and rebuilding homes, schools, businesses, and public infrastructure.

The library is located at 580 Howard Avenue, adjacent to the Biloxi Civic Center.

For more information, please call (228) 436-3095.
