Jim Dwyer and Kevin Flynn talked about their book 102 Minutes: The Untold Story of the Fight to Survive Inside the Twin Towers, published by Times Books. It drew on interviews the two authors conducted with survivors, rescuers, and family members of victims who made last-minute contact with their friends and relatives. The authors detailed the events and obstacles faced by those in the towers that morning, such as assisting a wheelchair-bound colleague down more than fifty flights of stairs or attempting to open a jammed elevator. They also showed many slides of illustrations from their book. Following their remarks they answered questions from members of the audience. close
