The Memory, Legacy, and Lingering Questions of 9/11

Gerald R. Ford Presidential Museum
Grand Rapids, MI

Wednesday, September 8, 2021 - 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. EST


Join the Gerald R. Ford Presidential Foundation, Library, and Museum in welcoming back Garrett M. Graff to examine the legacy of the 9/11 terrorist attacks.

Historian Garrett M. Graff, author of the New York Times bestseller The Only Plane in the Sky: An Oral History of 9/11, looks at how our nation remembers the events of September 11th, 2001, how a new generation faces the legacy of these events (and wars) older than they are, and what we still wonder about twenty years later.

Graff is a distinguished magazine journalist, best selling historian, and regular TV commentator. He has spent more than a dozen years covering politics, technology, and national security—helping to explain where we’ve been and where we’re headed. Today, Graff serves as the director of the Aspen Institute’s cybersecurity and technology program and is a contributor to WIRED, Longreads, and CNN.
