TN Writers/TN Stories presents Yasmine Ali

April 8, 2023 @ 12:00 pm 1:30 pm CDT

A gripping and meticulously crafted work of narrative nonfiction, Walk Through Fire: The Train Disaster That Changed America (on-sale February 21, 2023) reconstructs the events of a horrific explosion in 1978 that can still be felt today. The explosion of a tank car full of liquid propane devastated the small town of Waverly, Tennessee, shocked the nation, and led to the creation of transformational laws and regulations which have since been adopted by countries around the world as a template for disaster management. Yasmine S. Ali, MD, is a cardiologist and former president of the Vanderbilt History of Medicine Society.
