Jessica DuLong

author, "SAVED AT THE SEAWALL: Stories from the September 11 Boat Lift"
Jessica DuLong is a Brooklyn-based author, journalist, editor, and book collaborator/coach. Her longstanding interest in trauma further intensified while reporting her book, "SAVED AT THE SEAWALL: Stories from the September 11 Boat Lift," the definitive history of the world’s largest waterborne evacuation. Interviews for SAVED, which was featured in Spike Lee’s docuseries "NYC EPICENTERS," called upon DuLong to lead survivors through memories of their most harrowing moments, while reconciling her own PTSD from serving at the World Trade Center as a USCG-licensed marine engineer aboard retired 1931 NYC fireboat John J. Harvey. Today, DuLong writes regularly about books for CNN.com and collaborates on nonfiction books covering trauma, psychology, and neuroscience; memoir; history; health; race, racism, and equity; gender; parenting; and justice.
