Where were you on the morning of Sept. 11, 2001? Most of us were safely watching the attacks on the World Trade Center on a television. A few Louisvillians were in New York City watching in real time and lived to tell the tale. As part of the Louisville Photo Biennial, the Louisville Free Public Library is hosting an exhibition, “here is new york: the september 11 photographs,” from Sept. 9-Nov. 14. The 500 photographs, marking the 20th anniversary of the event, were taken that Tuesday and the days that followed. The panel discussion, followed by a reception, is on Sept. 9 at 6:30 p.m. Panelists are Elizabeth Kramer, former communications officer who worked in the Peace Corps office in the World Trade Center, WHAS-11 photojournalist Pete Longton who covered Ground Zero, and Charles Traub, co-founder of the “here is new york” collection and exhibition. Melissa Swan is the moderator.
