Remembering 9/11 – A NYC Firefighter’s Memoir at the Delray Beach Public Library


The Delray Beach Public Library is pleased to announce a special author event with New York City firefighter Ron Parker who will speak about his book “Chief, Pawns & Warriors”, a true life recount of his story on that unforgettable day in American history, September 11, 2001. The program is scheduled for Monday, September 8, 2014 @ 2:00 p.m. Very few firefighter accounts of that day have been published. Please join Ron Parker as he takes you on a journey through 20 stories of mangled steel, clouds of smoke and ash in his attempts to rescue thousands of civilians and lost firefighter brothers trapped beneath the fallen twin towers. As he said, his only choices were to be a chief, a pawn, or a warrior because being a victim was not an option. Books will be available for purchase and autographing.
