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.
