The Eleventh Day

Thursday, July 21, 2011

Anthony Summers and Robbyn Swan explain the circumstances of 9/11 by examining not only the sequence of events leading up to the disaster and the persons involved, but also the response of the U.S. government on that day and the efforts of U.S. intelligence immediately before and after the attack. Their book The Eleventh Day: The Full Story of 9/11 and Osama bin Laden draws on previously classified records and raw transcripts, investigates the response of President Bush and the U.S. military that day, and examines the failure to intercept the hijacked airliners. They document the untruths told afterward by U.S. officials and examine the “9/11 truth” movement, and look at where we stand now, ten years later.

The Search for the Anthrax Killer

Wednesday, June 15, 2011

Pulitzer Prize–winning journalist David Willman tells the gripping story of the hunt for the anthrax killer who terrorized the country in the days that followed the 9/11 attacks. The Mirage Man: Bruce Ivins, the Anthrax Attacks, and America's Rush to War reveals how a seemingly harmless, if eccentric, scientist hid a secret life from his closest associates and family, and how the trail of evidence led to him. Willman also exposes the faulty investigation that led to the public smearing of the wrong man, Steven Hatfill, a scientist whose life was upended by the false allegations against him.

What's Your 9/11 Story?

Friday, March 18, 2011

The 9/11 Generation Speaks: This spring and summer, WNYC’s Radio Rookies, is holding a workshop to help young people tell stories about growing up in the New York area since 9/11. We are looking for people for whom 9/11 was, in some way, a pivotal moment in their growth. Ideally, participants will range from kids who lost family members to those impacted less directly by 9/11 and its aftermath: maybe they lived near the World Trade Center; perhaps the attacks changed their lives because of their parents' line of work or their family's religion; maybe their own convictions have been challenged or led them to take some action. We know that 9/11 affected different people in many different ways, and we hope to be surprised by some of the stories young people have to tell.
