FIVE DAYS AT MEMORIAL Life and Death in a Storm-Ravaged Hospital

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Kirsten Potter

Contemporary Culture • 17.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2013

This audiobook is the result of an in-depth investigation into the events immediately following Hurricane Katrina’s destruction of New Orleans in 2005. Narrator Kirsten Potter approaches this mammoth work with a deliberate reportorial tone that emphasizes the author’s words without appealing to emotion. Memorial Medical Center was overrun by water and people, and in the months and years that followed health care professionals were forced to defend the medical decisions they made in the face of extraordinary circumstances. Potter’s nasal-tinged voice is low and clear, and she treats each phrase and event with care, allowing listeners to focus on the story. Her careful, measured performance makes this a remarkable achievement. R.I.G. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2013, Portland, Maine [Published: NOVEMBER 2013]
