Ginger Adams Otis in Firefight: The Century-Long Battle to Integrate New York’s Bravest shares stories of courage—about firefighters risking their lives in the line of duty but also risking their livelihood by battling an unjust system. Based on years of on the ground reporting, Firefight is an exciting blend of high-octane firefighting, critical Civil Rights history and a grassroots struggle for opportunity. A book signing will follow the conversation.
