Radio Houstoned: Chris Rose and Hurricane Katrina
To listen to our interview with author Chris Rose and a short reading from 1 Dead in Attic, After Katrina click the LISTEN button below.
A crime reporter and columnist for the New Orleans Times-Picayune, Chris Rose had been covering politics, pop culture and NOLA nightlife. All that changed on August 29, 2005, when Hurricane Katrina blew into town. On that day, Rose became a self-pronounced war correspondent. Two years later, Rose says the war is still being fought.
Rose will stop off in Houston later this week to discuss his latest book, 1 Dead in Attic, After Katrina. Today, the second anniversary of the storm, we present our conversation with him about life in post-flood New Orleans.
