Books To Talk About - That Day In September

Books To Talk About

That Day In September by Artie Van Why

Most of us remember the day and will never forget it.  It was a day that changed not only the lives of the U.S.A. but the World. 9/11 can be seen as a day of great tragedy for all the lives that had been lost that day.   It can also be seen as a day that many learned to live again or live for those that are no longer with us.

That Day In September is a memoir about a man who worked across from the twin tower the day of the attacks on 9/11 and how that day and the lives of those lost changed his life.  The novel takes you from the day of the attacks to present day of how it changed Artie Van Why’s life.


1) Where were you the day of 9/11? What were your first thoughts when you found out about the attacks?

2) How has your life been affected after that day?  Do you live in fear or do you live your life more fully now?

*my answer will be in the comments. I realize I haven’t been answering the questions myself and will do so more often.

1) September 11th I was living in the Netherlands with my future husband. My first thoughts were disbelief and confusion.

2)Fear was felt across the world. For us being American citizens in another country was tense. I am sorry to say that my fear have overcome me since that day. I don't know if 9/11 one of the reasons I have my issues now but I am learning to deal with the fears I have about life and trying to live happier.

Considering current events these days, it's even more important than ever to remain hopeful for the future. September 11th reminded me of life's uncertainties, and that everyone has to face them in some way.

I discovered a book the other day that reminded me of that same truth again. It's a vividly illustrated children's picture book titled, "Do Spiders Need Leggin's When its Cold Outside?" Proceeds from each copy go to support awareness for organ donation.

Will - it looks like acute book but I don't understand the connection.
