Book Discussion: The Day the World Came to Town
The Day the World Came to Town: 9/11 in Gander, Newfoundland by Jim DeFede
The true story behind the events on 9/11 that inspired Broadway’s hit musical Come From Away
The Day the World Came to Town is the inspiring story of the small town of Gander, Canada and the goodwill of its residents. In the immediate aftermath of 9/11, 38 jetliners bound for the United States were rerouted for Gander International Airport on the island of Newfoundland. Gander residents greeted stranded passengers with overwhelming kindness, providing for their needs and creating friendships that will last a lifetime.
