Bringing a deeply personal narrative to a story of idealism, hardship, and action, The Parish: An Americorps Story reminds how much the story of Hurricane Katrina became a personal crucible for volunteers drawn to a city in crisis.
-- Julian Chambliss, urban and cultural historian, co-editor of
Ages of Heroes, Eras of Men: Superheroes and the American Experience
The Parish’s ride may not be as rough as Hurricane Katrina itself, but the cast experiences their own storms working to bring relief to one of the hardest hit areas while searching for something inside themselves. It’s a ride worth taking with them.
-- Roland Mann, comics author of Cat & Mouse, and The Remaining.
