“If you want to reflect on that day ten years ago but you’re also ready to look forward, this is a book to find. For you, “A Place of Remembrance” will definitely leave its mark.” –Pittsburgh Tribune-Review
“Although the book recounts the terror, it focuses on the memorial…and, after 10 years, hope is probably what most readers, and most Americans, are looking for.” –The Columbus Dispatch
“[It] begins with a history of the World Trade Center and an account of 9/11, then covers the contentious process of creating the memorial on the site that will open on the 10th anniversary.”
–St. Petersburg Times
“The primary focus is on the initiative to commemorate victims with a spectacular memorial, which opens next week in the footprints of the original twin towers.” –Fort Worth Star Telegram
“The book gives respectful attention to the horrors of Sept. 11, 2001, and the heroic recovery efforts, but then focuses on the process of deciding how best to memorialize the tragic and historic event on eight acres of real estate in Lower Manhattan.” –Chicago Sun Times
“Published to coincide with the opening of the official New York memorial, ‘A Place of Remembrance’ features vivid accounts of the day and striking photography. The fold-out listing victims’ names is powerful.” –Boston Herald
“Filled with pictures and information about the new Memorial built on the site of the World Trade Center, [the book] evokes images and memories of that terrible day and replaces them with a message of hope. Remembrance recounts the events of the day, as well as the history of the memorial and how it’s come to be. The book is getting five star reader reviews, as well as critical reviews for its candor and reverence of the people and place.” –Lexington Examiner (Kentucky)
