National Radio Tour Scheduled for 9/11/13

On 09, Sep 2013 | No Comments | In Event, Non-Fiction Book | By admin

Damon will take part in a national radio tour on the morning of 9/11 via Premiere Radio Networks. He will be joined by Florence Engoran, a survivor of the World Trade Center, whose story appears in Tower Stories: An Oral History of 9/11.

Florence was 5 months pregnant and working on the 55th Floor of Tower 2 at the time of the attacks. Through the help of colleagues and complete strangers, in the midst of the chaos that ensued, she was able to walk to the base of the towers and flee to safety.

Florence’s daughter, Emily Rose, was born a few months later. Emily recently turned 11 years old. She participates in volunteer work, donating her time and energy to various causes.

Damon’s co-author Baiqiao Tang speaks at University of Rochester

On 02, Jan 2013 | In Event, Non-Fiction Book | By admin

What do a dropped book, a freshman in college, and Tiananmen Square have to do with one another?

On May 7, 2011, Yvonne Crittenden of the Sudbury Star writes:

“This is the story of a very brave man. Baiqiao Tang is one of the best known young Chinese dissidents whose hopes for democracy in China were dashed after the massacre at Tiananmen Square in 1989. In this gripping and poignant story of his life in China and eventual escape to safety in the west, Tang shows how a brilliant, dedicated young student was instilled with a desire to bring human rights to his country. Tang’s name became legendary in the pro-democracy movement in China. He was imprisoned in a notorious jail in the crackdown after Tiananmen Square. He describes the horrendous treatment meted out by brutal guards who tortured, starved and routinely beat prisoners. Paroled, he now lives in New York City and carries the banner for his cause in exile. A mesmerizing and Read more…
