downtown schools that were affected by the attacks.
On the morning of September 11, 2001, freelance journalist
Wicki Boyle was at home in the TriBeCa loft where she lives and
works with her husband and two teenage children. She was an
eyewitness to the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center
and the ensuing horrors from close range. Her son's school is a
few blocks from where the twin towers stood.
This book is a series of moving personal essays written in the
aftermath of the attacks--reactions, reflections, meditations--
from the point of view of a mother who is also a longtime
community resident and activist.
Wickham Boyle, known in her wide circle of friends and
acquaintances as Wicki, has lived in TriBeCa since 1976. She is
formerly manager of the La MaMa Theater, a world-renowned
experimental troupe in Lower Manhattan; she has an M.B.A. from
Yale University's School of Organization and Management, and
worked as a Wall Street stockbroker. She has written numerous
articles on parenting, the arts, finance and travel for The New
York Times, Ms., New York Magazine, Mode, Savoy, and Gotham.
She was also one of the founders of Code Magazine.
