The Rockaways Release Party

A Devastating Chronicle of the Aftermath of Hurricane Sandy

The Rockaways—published on the first anniversary of Hurricane Sandy by the Concord Free Press—combines visceral photos by renowned photographer Gilles Peress (Telex Iran, Farewell to Bosnia) with the voices of residents of The Rockaways, one of the communities hit hardest by the superstorm. The CFP will distribute 3,000 copies of The Rockaways via independent bookstores, museums, and internet requests—for free—asking only that recipients donate to a Sandy-related aid organization, another charity, or someone in need. Then pass the book on to another reader so that he or she can give.

This generosity-inspiring book is a collaboration between the CFP, Kodak, Peress, and dozens editors, writers, and printers—all donating their time and talent.
