Seven years ago, from August 23 to August 30, 2005, Hurricane Katrina stormed though New Orleans, causing the levees to break, devastating a large part of the Crescent City. To mark the seventh anniversary of this disaster, we offer a bibliography of all Southern Spaces publications discussing Katrina.
