Holden Heading Bridge Collapse Compensation Panel
"This is an important part of the process, to tell their story of what happened and how it's affected their lives."
At a time when most people's bookshelves are stacked with potboilers and whodunits, Susan Holden is leading off her summer reading with What is Life Worth?, the memoir by the man who managed the Sept. 11 victims' fund.
The book, and the question, hold a particular interest for Holden, chairwoman of the special master panel to compensate victims of the 35W bridge collapse.
Holden, a personal-injury attorney with SiebenCarey, was appointed in May to chair the three-person panel created by the state Legislature to consider claims and make agreements with survivors of the bridge collapse.
