Subject : “An Unbroken Bond,” with Edie Lutnick
Detail : 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.
