Reviews of That Day in September

Countless heroes emerged from the chaos of Sept. 11, and by selflessly sharing his story, Van Why must be counted among their number.
— The Los Angeles Times

Van Why claims neither hero nor victim status. He’s just a man who was shaken to his core and emerged a new, stronger person.
— Michael J. Toscano, Special to The Washington Post

[‘That Day In September’ is] a deeply moving depiction of one man’s experiences at Ground Zero and the devastating emotional legacy that followed.
