On 09, Aug 2011 | In Non-Fiction Book | By admin

Personal stories of the victims in the air and in the World Trade Center are the subject of many best books about the September 11 attacks . . .

Missouri college to do two readings of “Tower Stories” to commemorate September 11th

On 08, Jun 2011 | In Non-Fiction Book | By admin

East Central College of Union, Missouri will host two nights of readings from my book Tower Stories: An Oral History of 9/11 as part of their commermoration of 9/11, this coming September.

Publishers Weekly called Tower Stories:

“. . . monumental . . . In the weeks following the World Trade Center attack, DiMarco, in the tradition of Studs Terkel, wandered Manhattan collecting the stories of Gothamites who survived the collapse of the towers, came to help or simply bore witness-whether from elsewhere in the city, across the country or overseas . . . DiMarco’s contribution to the memory of that horrific day is enormous; the testimonies collected here form an amazing, one-of-a-kind account.” 

Library Journal called Tower Stories:

“…unique, a multitude of firsthand experiences preserved as few other 9/11 books have done. This second edition is expanded with many more photographs and with updates about a number of the witnesses interviewed. Recommended for all public and undergraduate libraries.”

Interested in doing a reading event at your theater, college or university, or civic group? All public readings of material from Tower Stories: An Oral History of 9/11  are subject to a performance royalty, as well as certain contracual agreements and restrictions. Please e-mail info@towerstories.org or mail@damondimarco.com to request a Royalty Application.
