Author Interview - Words Whispered in Water with Sandy Rosenthal
In the aftermath of the most costly engineering disaster in U.S. history, Sandy Rosenthal can tell of her personal battle––against all odds––to expose a mammoth federal agency and won. Citizen investigator Sandy Rosenthal can share her tale about how she found the culprit in the catastrophic flooding of New Orleans during Hurricane Katrina. It’s a horror story, a who-dunnit, and a David & Goliath story all in one. Rosenthal weaves her way through deception and lies to expose the unquestionable truth and takes the listener along for the ride.
Sandy was just an ordinary citizen with no special training or resources who uncovered a scandal that forced the Army Corps of Engineers to tell the truth about their mistakes with the levees of New Orleans. Those mistakes amplified the devastation of New Orleans during Hurricane Katrina. On September 27, 2022, the Associated Press (AP) issued a style guide to its thousands of offices worldwide on how to report on the 2005 flooding in New Orleans. The AP wants its reporters to refer to the flooding as caused by improper federal levee construction, not storm surge. This confirms what Sandy states in her book.
This is an inspiring David and Goliath story prompting many to refer to Sandy as the "Erin Brockovich" of levees. Brockovich's story and Sandy’s are remarkably similar. In fact, they’ve even met each other! Her book is garnering an average of 4.7 stars on Amazon!
Additionally, Sandy has her own podcast, Beat the Big Guys, that inspires people to be the change they want to see in the world.
