Modeled on Dante’s Inferno, veteran journalist Tom Flynn’s Bikeman chronicles the morning of September 11, 2001 like no other published work. Flynn delivers a personal account of his experiences beginning with the first strike on the World Trade Center when he decided to follow his journalist’s instinct and point his bike’s handlebars in the direction of the north tower. His story continues as he transitions from reporter to participant hoping to survive the fall of the south tower. Flynn, as both journalist and now survivor, must come to terms with the harrowing ordeal and somehow find peace in the very act of surviving. The Library commemorates the fifteenth anniversary of September 11th with readings from Bikeman, performed by the Tony award winning actor Jim Dale, illustrated with photos and documents from the NYPL archives, plus a conversation with Thomas Flynn.
