I’m honored to be in discussion with Rebecca Solnit author of A Paradise Built in Hell, an amazing book on the communities that develop in response to disaster, and the wonderful Brian Tolle who created the Irish Hunger Memorial, steps away from the WTC site and under construction on 9/11. I’ll be presenting on Voices of 9.11 as a people’s archive.
We will look at what is being commemorated and what is already being erased from the public memory. How did we respond in our communities in the immediate aftermath? How does the media and political onslaught shape our memory of 9/11?
Thanks to Suzanne Wasserman and the Gotham Center for NYC History for hosting this event. Please stop by and join the conversation.
See you in the streets!
