What was it like on September 11, 2001, on Amherst’s campus? In New York City? At the Pentagon? How did that day change the United States and the world you grew up in? What does it all mean for today and the future? Will this all change as memories fade? Join us for a discussion with three members of the Amherst community-- Frank Couvares, Sandy Genelius and Mark Jacobson --who will speak about their respective experiences on campus, in New York City and at the Pentagon on that day.
