Release date is summer 2020
The founder of the national advocacy group Levees.org has recently signed a book deal with Mango Publishing, based in Miami.
Sandy Rosenthal’s book––Words Whispered in Water: Why the Levees Broke in New Orleans––is about how she exposed the culprit in the catastrophic flooding during Hurricane Katrina in 2005.
Mango is currently one of the fastest growing independent publishers according to Publisher’s Weekly.
The book is Rosenthal's story about how she became a citizen investigator and unraveled a multi-million dollar cover up that media and an elite engineering trade group took part in.
In her quest for the vetted facts, Rosenthal faced one of the most powerful agencies in the Federal government––the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers––and won.

Rosenthal’s website states the book will be out in summer of 2020, coinciding with the 15th anniversary of the disaster which took 1,577 lives (according to the National Hurricane Center).
