This week, Martha is joined by author James Reston Jr., to discuss his new historical novel, The 19th Hijacker.

With the help of archives and research, James takes listeners through a fictional account of what lead up to that day and delves into the mind of one of the terrorists involved, who pondered his choice to join the 9/11 hijackers. He explains the challenges he faced in wanting to explore this tragic story, while also humanizing the people that caused it.
