“In the wake of the September 11 attacks, New Yorkers from all walks of life felt compelled to overcome their sense of powerlessness by volunteering to help out in the recovery effort. They brought in supplies, set up relief stations, and for ten months fed and cared for the recovery workers. Many deep and unexpected — even unlikely — relationships developed out of this.”Davis Guggenheim, who directed the film An Inconvenient Truth, called this moving documentary “a poem to a group of everyday New Yorkers who discover in themselves a quiet greatness born from the darkness of 9/11.”This film is not rated.Our guest scholar for the evening is our very own Dr. Davor Jedlicka, who was a Red Cross volunteer at Ground Zero. He will provide commentary and answer questions after the film. This event is free and open to the public. About the September Project: Since 2004, libraries around the world have organized events about freedom and issues that matter to their communities during the month of September. This grassroots project favors free over fee, public over private, and voices over silence.
