"Joplin: Our Words, Our Stories, Their hope" is a new online book you can order to help Rebuild Joplin, a non-profit organization that is helping rebuild homes lost in the EF-5 tornado. Written chiefly by KOMU's News Anchor Jim Riek and Meteorologist Michelle Bogowith, the collection of stories from the station's student reporters offers an insight into their coverage in the tornado's aftermath. All proceeds of the book go to Rebuild Joplin, so please help support this worthy effort! Rebuild Joplin still has plans to built another 150 homes destroyed in the tornado.
