AT GROUND ZERO: The Young Reporters Who Were There Tell Their Stories

Chris Bull, Editor, Sam Erman, Editor, Editor *, Editor . Thunder's Mouth $15.95 (324p) ISBN 978-1-56025-427-0

Newsday reporter S. Mitra Kalita was at the dentist when she heard the news; she went to a market in Queens to hear the fears of a local Muslim butcher. Columbia School of Journalism student Matthew J. Mallone ate his Raisin Bran, watching CNN, before racing into the city to interview dazed survivors. The journalists whose stories Advocate correspondent Bull and Thunder's Mouth editor Erman gather together in a volume designed for the backpacks of j-school students and cub reporters muse on the powerful and conflicting feelings they experienced as they "struggled to reconcile the opportunities this story afforded them with the enormity of carnage and suffering they saw all around them." (Sept.)
