August 14, 2006, Clifton, NJ—Kristen Breitweiser, author of the new book, Wake-Up Call: The Political Education of a 9/11 Widow, to speak at Barnes & Noble in Clifton Commons.


In her brutally honest memoir, Wake-Up Call: The Political Education of a 9/11 Widow, Kristen Breitweiser details her political awakening, from a woman living in a self imposed bubble of domestic bliss to her transformation into a political pit bull and an outspoken advocate for victim’s compensation rights.



Kirkus has called her story “…valiant and heartbreaking.”



Kristen Breitweiser, a lawyer and one of “The Jersey Girls,” a group of four women who were widowed when their husbands were killed in the September 11, 2001 attacks, fought

tirelessly for the creation of the 9/11 Commission, in spite of strong opposition from President Bush, Vice President Cheney and Condoleeza Rice.



Wake-Up Call discloses mistakes, cover-ups and unsettling facts about present-day national security. There are descriptions of surprising encounters with some of this country’s most powerful officials and details of heart-rending personal discoveries and battles.



Kristen Breitweiser appears frequently on national television as a commentator on matters related to terrorism and has been featured in the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Vanity Fair, Oprah, Glamour and Ms., and is a frequent contributor to The Huffington Post and other publications. Breitweiser was named Woman of the Year by both Ms. and Glamour and won the 2005 Ron Ridenhour Truth-Telling Award.





WHO: Kristen Breitweiser author of “Wake-Up Call: The Political Education of a

9/11 Widow”

WHAT: Discussion and signing

WHEN: Wednesday, Sept. 13 at 7:30 PM

WHERE: Barnes & Noble, second floor event space, 395 Route 3 East, Clifton, NJ
