Event description

Description

Following a day-long screening of Wolfgang Staehle’s “2001,” join a panel of writers whose works of fiction and non-fiction focus on our shared experience of the attacks, as they discuss the power of their craft to process, document, and bring understanding. Jessica Chen, Senior Director of Public and Professional Programs at the 9/11 Memorial & Museum, moderates a conversation with Garrett M. Graff, author of The Only Plane in the Sky: An Oral History of 9/11, Giannina Braschi, author of United States of Banana, and others.
