AP Correspondent and Louisvillian Jonathan Katz to sign his new book.

On Thursday, February 21st at 7 PM, Carmichael's Bookstore and the Society of Professional Journalists welcome journalist Jonathan Katz for a signing of his new book The Big Truck That Went By : How the World Came to Save Haiti and Left Behind a Disaster.

On January 12, 2010, the deadliest earthquake ever recorded in the Western Hemisphere struck Haiti. Rescuers and aid workers rushed to save lives as the world pledged more than $15.3 billion for relief and reconstruction. Yet nearly three years later, Haiti is still in crisis. Jonathan Katz, the only full-time U.S. journalist stationed in Haiti at the time, was there to witness the destruction and its aftermath. Please join us as we welcome Jonathan to Carmichael's to talk about his book and his remarkable time in Haiti.
