Garrett M. Graff - The Only Plane in the Sky: An Oral History of 9/11 — at Politics and Prose at The Wharf

Upcoming Event
Thursday, September 12, 2019 - 7:00pm to 8:00pm

The first comprehensive oral history of September 11, 2001, Graff’s panoramic account weaves together the testimony of hundreds of people who were directly involved in the day’s events. Using never-before-published transcripts, declassified documents, original interviews, and stories from first-responders, survivors, witnesses, government officials, and many others, Graff, a magazine journalist and author of Raven Rock and The Threat Matrix, allows those who were there to recreate the tragedy; in vivid, minute-by-minute detail, we get the raw emotions of the firefighters in the stairwell, the fighter pilots put on alert across the northeast, the teachers evacuating classes, and the many bystanders who could only look on.
