In collaboration with Sterling Publishing, “September 11: The 9/11 Story, Aftermath and Legacy,” is a comprehensive look at the 9/11 terrorist attacks as told through stories and photographs from AP covering everything from the events of that tragic day to the rebuilding of the World Trade Center and beyond.

The volume includes breaking news reports and in-depth investigative pieces from the AP archives, ranging from AP’s wall-to-wall reporting on Sept. 11, 2001; coverage of the rescue efforts and aftermath; the world’s reaction and subsequent U.S. military operations; and the rebuilding of downtown New York.

“With this project, we set out to bring to life AP’s gripping coverage of that seismic day 20 years ago,” said AP Director of Programming Peter Costanzo. “‘September 11’ tells the many stories of 9/11—not only of the unprecedented horror of that morning, but also of the inspiring resilience and hope of the human spirit that followed.”

The book features a foreword by actor Robert De Niro.

“September 11: The 9/11 Story, Aftermath and Legacy,” is available now online and in hardcover wherever books are sold.
