The fact of the matter is, immediately after you start reading Five Days at Memorial, you realize the exact opposite is true. This Pulitzer Prize-winning tome, written by Sheri Fink, is actually a gruesomely true tale of the events that happened at Memorial Hospital in New Orleans in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. From the onset, I was riveted.
Depending on where you lived during Hurricane Katrina, your experience with the superstorm may range from extremely personal to a distant memory. Regardless, Five Days at Memorial will challenge your perception of one of our nation's biggest disasters and leave you wondering, "What would I have done?"
