Staff Picks: Drowned City by Don Brown
Every month, library staff members are bringing you 100 books we love—culled from the millions upon millions out in the world—via our interactive Staff Picks browse tool.
This month's highlight: Drowned City by Don Brown, an intense nonfiction graphic novel for young adults.
This graphic, historical account of Hurricane Katrina's assault on New Orleans is perfectly timed as we reflect on the decade that's passed since one of the nation's worst national disasters. The art is as incredible as the story is unbelievable, but Brown ultimately leaves readers with a hopeful tone for the future of the Crescent City. —Brian Stokes, Jefferson Market
