Since the publication of “RISING TIDE: The Great Mississippi Flood of 1927 and How It Changed America,” it has been widely hailed as essential reading to understand the relationship between New Orleans, the water that surrounds it, and the rest of the country’s attitude toward the city.

To mark the book’s 20th anniversary, author and historian John Barry will deliver a special lecture at 6 p.m. tonight (Tuesday, March 28) at Octavia Books.

For more information, see the page for the event at the bookstore’s website.
