Michael Hingson, #1 New York Times best-selling author, will recount for San Jacinto College students on April 15 and 16 his powerful and inspiring story about how he and his guide dog helped others survive and escape to safety from the 78th floor of Tower One of the World Trade Center on Sept. 11, 2001.

Blind at birth, Hingson’s story is one of perseverance, fearlessness, and determination. He tells his story of ultimate trust and the extraordinary human-animal bond in his New York Times bestseller, “Thunder Dog: The True Story of a Blind Man, His Dog, and the Triumph of Trust.”

On April 15,  Hingson will give two morning presentations at the San Jacinto College South Campus, “Thinking Inside the Box,” at 10 a.m. and 11:30 a.m., and an evening presentation, “Is this the Choice that Will Change Your Life,” at 7 p.m. A book signing will follow the evening presentation only. All presentations will take place in the Proscenium Theatre in the Marie Spence Flickinger Fine Arts Center.

On April 16, Hingson will give a morning presentation at the San Jacinto College North Campus at 11:30 a.m. in the student center Monument Room. All presentations are free and open to San Jacinto College students and the public.
