A story headlined "Beyond The Breach" in ESPN The Magazine weaves the lives of several different characters into a narrative of life in New Orleans 10 years after Katrina.

It's the first time the magazine has devoted an entire issue to a single writer and a single subject. The result paints a picture of how the hurricane disrupted and changed so many lives when it hit the city in 2005.

Here & Now's Lisa Mullins speaks with the author of the piece, Wright Thompson.

Guest

  • Wright Thompson, senior writer for ESPN.com and ESPN The Magazine.

This segment aired on September 2, 2015.
