October 2, 2021 - 2:00 pm to 3:00 pm
Join us at Read Between The Lynes on October 2, 2021, from 2-3 pm to meet Ryan Yantis and Don Bacso, contributors to “9/11 Survivors’ Stories Midwest Memories.”
The book will be available for purchase in-store.
“This book is a collection of ten individual stories that recall that horrific day. Four of the contributors were in the World Trade Center Towers when the planes hit. Two more who share their stories were right outside of the Towers, witnessing the carnage as it unfolded. Two of the contributors were in the Pentagon that day and the days, weeks, and months immediately following, reentering the building the very next day when it was still on fire. The last two who share their stories directly supported these survivors.
Each was from or had strong ties, to the Midwest. They each recount the moments leading up to the attacks, what they saw, heard, and experienced, what they did after, and the healing they undertook. For each of them, 9/11 was a catalyst that helped make them better people.”
