Anole Publishing Introduces Pauline L. Hawkins
June 15, 2012 – Denver, CO, and Plano, TX – Anole Publishing announced today the release of Ashes Ashes the Twins Fall Down, Twin Towers, 9/11, by author Pauline L. Hawkins. Hawkins’ debut book tells the story of her trying to cope with the tragic event, its immediate repercussions on her family, and the re-framing of the vision of America that she, like so many of us, was forced to undergo because of that fateful September day.
“Where were you on 9/11?” the author asks, and as she relates the events of her morning on that sunny, late summer day, readers will find their own memories brought into a clearer light of hearing the tragic news on the car radio or from a fellow employee when they arrived at work or from a family member’s phone call asking if they were all right.
The morning of 9/11 is placed carefully in broader political, historical and social contexts, and the author also devotes an appropriate measure of appreciation to those who sacrificed for their country not only on that day, but on the many days since, both at home and overseas.
This event that has become so tightly woven into the continuing fabric of our American culture will be given even more clarity by Ashes, Ashes, the Twins Fall Down because of the author’s thoughtful blend of the subjective and the objective and her ability to convey so readily a response felt by so many Americans that day.
