What do you think happened during the final hours in the lives of the staff of the Windows on the World restaurant atop the North Tower of the World Trade Center on the morning of September 11, 2001? An extensively researched novel based on actual people, The Restaurant at the End of the World will appeal to anyone who has suffered the sudden throes of human tragedy—the loss of a loved one, who, seemingly moments before, was vividly living out their aspirations. In this interactive session, the lives of the characters and how we experience grief will be explored through an examination of select readings from the book.
