September Events
Opening Reception: “Ground Zero 360: Never Forget”
September 11, 2014 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM
Location Mincberg Gallery
 
An exhibition honoring the victims of 9-11, “Ground Zero 360” was created and organized by Paul McCormack, a retired Lieutenant from the New York City Police Department who participated in the rescue and recovery effort, and his wife Nicola McClean, a New York-based photographer from Ireland, who took pictures of the chaos that day. With a selection of more than 80 photographs taken by Nicola, the exhibit consists of harrowing images, heartbreaking “missing posters” and a unique panoramic installation, inviting visitors to visualize the events in the days following the attacks. Visitors will also be able to hear the city’s previously unreleased emergency radio calls from that morning and touch a fragment of twisted steel I-beam and broken granite from the World Trade Center. Personal artifacts on loan from families will also be on view. HMH members are invited to a free preview reception from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m., Thursday, Sept. 11. To renew your membership or to join and attend, visit our Web site at www.hmh.org, e-mail membership@hmh.org or call 713-527-1640.

“An Unbroken Bond,” with Edie Lutnick
September 18, 2014 7:30 PM - 9:00 PM
Location Asia Society Texas Center, 1370 Southmore Blvd., Houston, TX 77004
 
On Sept. 11, 2001, 658 men and women at Cantor Fitzgerald found themselves trapped together in One World Trade Center, and none would make it out alive. Among them was Edie Lutnick's brother, Gary, whom she had raised when their parents died at an early age. This is the story of the victims, the families and how they came together bonded by a tragic fate, but the story doesn't end there. In the aftermath of the attacks, Edie answered the call from her other brother Cantor Fitzgerald CEO Howard Lutnick, to create a fund for the firm's families who had lost loved ones. Over the past decade, Edie and Howard have found themselves in a fight not to just give aid and comfort to the larger Cantor family, but also to honor the memory of countless victims. What they weren't expecting was to find a barrage of issues in their way from political jockeying to class biases. This is the powerful, sometimes infuriating and ultimately heartrending story of the mission to fulfill an important legacy and give meaning to the lives of the victims of 9/11. Tickets are $5 for HMH members, seniors and students and $8 for nonmembers. Seating is limited, and advance registration is requested. To RSVP online, visit www.hmh.org/RegisterEvent.aspx.
