How do we keep the stories alive for those who were not yet born on 9/11?

This Sunday, 9/11/16, come to a reading, directed by Amy Saltz, of TOWER STORIES, my new play (adapted from my book "Tower Stories: an Oral History of 9/11").

Survivors … our men and women in uniform … volunteers … witnesses . . . the bereaved.

Their stories have already become our history -- stories of hope, survival, and service to others.

Their words remind us that, when great challenges arise, great people rise with them. And this, more than anything, is why we must never forget.

Please join us this Sunday, 9/11/16, 5 p.m. The reading will be midtown, west side. You will get the address when you make a reservation.

To reserve your seat, please email
The play will run approximately 90 minutes, followed by a short post-production discussion.

Writing is a solitary occupation. But it doesn't mean you do it all on your own.

Sharing stories of people mourning their friends and changing their lives.
The Friend Grief series is about people's experiences grieving the death of a friend: their frustration at finding their grief was not respected, as well as the remarkable ways they changed their own lives as a tribute to that friend. And I owe it all to a friend.
