Disaster Revelations: Losses, Gains and Rebuilding Efforts for a New Future
Featuring Daniel Wolff

Natural disasters are revealing: they expose past prejudices, societal divisions, what we value and what we don’t. During his talk, award-winning author Daniel Wolff will compare Hurricane Katrina and Superstorm Sandy and talk about what we can watch for in the relief effort to come. A viewing of Mr. Wolff’s documentary film I’m Carolyn Parker (directed by Oscar-winner Jonathan Demme) will precede his talk. A book signing will follow the presentation.


Daniel Wolff is the author of How Lincoln Learned to Read, a Chicago Tribune Editor’s Choice pick; 4th of July, Asbury Park, a New York Times Book Review Editor’s Choice pick; You Send Me: The Life and Times of Sam Cooke, a national bestseller; and two volumes of poetry, among other books. His writing has appeared in publications ranging from Vogue to Wooden Boat to Education Weekly. Mr. Wolff is the co-producer, with Jonathan Demme, of several documentary film projects on New Orleans.
