Post-Rita Reflections is a story told, in the "sociological story telling" tradition, of a Louisiana sociologist who welcomed Hurricane Katrina evacuees into his school, and then a few weeks later became an evacuee himself as Hurricane Rita struck southwestern Louisiana. This book serves as a remembrance of what happened to his family, his school, and the students from New Orleans who became "double evacuees" as Rita approached, as well as the places that were completely destroyed and long forgotten by the national media, most notably Cameron Parish. Author Stan Weeber concludes with thoughts about the social policy implications of the events told throughout the book.
