  As one of the most devastating natural disasters to hit US soil, Hurricane Katrina still haunts New Orleans to this day. Don Brown gives an excruciating account of the immense damage in  his book, Drowned City. Politically neutral but full of truth, Drowned City uses graphic depictions to reveal the very real emotions and actions of those who weathered the storm. West Lafayette Public Library Director Nick Schenkel has a review.

John Bower and "The Common Good"

Apr 15, 2013

Indiana photographer John Bower travels the Hoosier state searching for special places to capture on film. The Common Good is his seventh book in a series that contains images of one-room school houses, churches, and public buildings no longer used.

He is speaking at the downtown branch of the Tippecanoe County Public Library. A book sale and signing event follow his presentation.

To celebrate its 40th anniversary, Lafayette Urban Ministry is displaying pictures of each of its 42 member churches, taken by local photographer Cary Rush.

Executive Director Joe Micon says the photographs are a good way to honor 40 years of service to the community.

"The gallery really generates a really good sense of the churches and their members that all work together as partners in the mission of the Lafayette Urban Ministry, which is serving our community's poor and disadvantaged."

Author and photographer Harold Lee Miller has put together a collection of over 100, full page photos taken at county fairs and the Indiana state fair.  This book is published by the Indiana Historical Society Press and has a forward written by Indiana essayist Phillip Gulley.
