Reflecting on 9/11: 10 Years Later

This coming Sunday marks the 10 year anniversary of September 11th. Many Towson students were tweens sitting in classrooms when you first heard the news and saw the footage of the Twin Towers collapsing broadcast on TV. Now is the time to remember those we have lost and to reflect upon the impact 9/11 has had on our lives as individuals and Americans. In that spirit, Reference Associate Amanda Youngbar has created a few lists of library resources to cultivate understanding and prompt questions about how these events have shaped our experience. All of these items are available through Cook Library.

Reflecting on 9/11: Non-fiction titles, largely selected based upon reviews in Choice, but also include significant government documents and titles by influential thinkers, such as Habermas and Zizek.
9/11 Biographies: Accounts of the lives of power players, as well as everyday folk.
Fiction Inspired by 9/11: Novels that incorporate the events of September 11th.

9/11 Videos: A collection of 9/11 videos from Films on Demand beginning with memories and responses to the tragic event and followed by historical and political accounts, including the iconic images of the Twin Towers collapsing.

Images from Ground Zero, the aftermath, rebuilding, and commemorations.
