On a Clear Day – 9/11 Eyewitness Account

The Corona Public Library invites the community to remember 9/11 with veteran, authorCorona Events on September 11, 2017, and guest speaker, Bert Upson who is a 9/11 survivor. Hear his eyewitness account at the Corona Public Library’s special commemorative event on Monday, September 11, 2017 from 10:30 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.

“I was on the South Tower when the North Tower was hit–and escaped–mere minutes before United #175 would obliterate our conference room,” says Upson. “My female companion got knocked flat by the crowd who were fleeing south from the north tower and would have been trampled to death had I not decided to risk my life to save hers. I am sure of that. So is she.” Upson’s book “On a Clear Day” is his story of this unforgettable day. Hear the rest of the story this September 11 and have the opportunity to get a copy of his book.

A Q&A and book signing will follow the 45-minute presentation and light snacks will be provided for guests.
