Long Island author Kathleen Murray Moran, will be speaking and signing copies of her memoir, Life Detonated.

About Life Detonated:

The gripping true story of Kathleen Murray, a young mother whose life was changed on September 11, 1976, when her husband, a NYPD bomb disposal expert, was killed by a terrorist’s bomb. It details the hijacking of TWA Flight 553 from LaGuardia Airport, her correspondence with the wife of the hijacker, who seduced her with her letters, her release from prison due to Murray’s appeal, and the final face-to-face meeting where the truth of who the hijacker was and what she wanted ripped away her ability to trust.

About the author:

She is the widow of Brian Murray and the co-founder of Survivors of the Shield (SOS). She was instrumental in passing legislation that led to former Governor Mario Cuomo’s COPS Agenda.
