Ray Nagin

NEW ORLEANS — Ex-New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin is releasing a memoir in June about his experiences dealing with Hurricane Katrina in 2005 and its aftermath.

He sent an e-mail and Twitter notes Tuesday about the book, “Katrina’s Secrets: Storms after the Storm.”

Nagin’s press release says the book will be released June 8 “via Amazon” and will discuss “institutional issues of race and class that secretly conspired to control and slow down the recovery.”

The Times-Picayune reported Tuesday that Nagin said in January he hadn’t decided whether to write a Katrina memoir.

Publicist Pat Heno-Smith did not immediately answer a call and e-mail.

Nagin is perhaps best-known for his desperate public plea to federal officials to “get off your asses and do something” as the city stood under water.
