Hear how these writers used the power of word to understand a world-changing tragedy. 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. The event is coproduced by Brooklyn Historical Society and 911 Memorial. The address for the event is 128 Pierrepont Street, Brooklyn, NY 11201
