Nancy's Bookshelf : Paul Harris, author of "Diary From The Dome"

Editor's Note: This episode of Nancy's Bookshelf aired on Jan. 2, 2010. We re-aired the episode on Friday, Sept. 4, following the 10th anniversary of Hurricane Katrina in August 2015.  

Paul Harris was on vacation in New Orleans when Hurricane Katrina forced him and others to take refuge in the Louisiana Superdome. He wrote the book "Diary From the Dome: Reflections on Fear and Privilege During Katrina," published in 2008, about the harrowing experience. 

Nancy Wiegman has a master's degree in French linguistics from Indiana University and taught yoga and foreign languages at CSU Fresno and the College of Charleston before moving to Chico in 1990.
