Visit the 9/11 Memorial Museum Store between 2 p.m. and 5 p.m. for a meet and greet with author Michael Hingson, who will be signing copies of his book, Thunder Dog: The True Story of a Blind Man, His Guide Dog, and the Triumph of Trust.

On September 11, 2001, Michael Hingson, a district sales manager for a data protection and network security systems company, was sitting down for a meeting at his office on the 78th floor of the North Tower. His guide dog, Roselle, was at his feet. Both Michael and Roselle successfully evacuated after hijacked American Airlines Flight 11 struck the building. 

Thunder Dog tells the story of Hingson and Roselle's evacuation that day, illuminates Hingson’s lifelong determination to achieve parity in a sighted world, and demonstrates how the rare trust between a man and his guide dog can inspire an unshakable faith in each one of us.
