Dean Rotbart is a Pulitzer Prize-nominated, former reporter and columnist with The Wall Street Journal.
On September 11, 2001, the men and women of The Wall Street Journal, business and financial reporters, suddenly were called upon to serve as war correspondents.
His new book, September Twelfth: An American Comeback Story, tells the behind-the-scenes story of how The Wall Street Journal published a Pulitzer Prize-winning edition on 9/12, even though it’s newsroom was destroyed.
The way the Journal and its staff responded on 9/11 offers many lessons for any organization, business, or individual who is confronted with an unexpected, large, setback and can either rebound or quit.
The book speaks to the indomitable spirit of America and Americans. As Vince Lombardi once said: “The real glory is being knocked to your knees and then coming back.”September 12th Book by Dean Rotbart
In researching the book, September Twelfth, Rotbart uncovered a trove of never-published emails and memos generated in real time by reporters and editors at The Wall Street Journal. He also interviewed dozens of reporters and editors who were on hand on 9/11.
