Guest 2. Susan Hagen shares how she came to holding writing circles for women.  As a former firefighter upon seeing the news story immediately  knew that she had to interview women who were involved in the 9/11 Trade Center rescue efforts so their contributions would not be lost to history amidst the male dominant narrative of the media news. She and co-author Mary Carouba crafted the vision into the book Women at Ground Zero.
