Miracle on the Hudson survivor to sign new book on Jan. 19 in North Bergen

NORTH BERGEN – Miracle on the Hudson flight survivor, inspirational speaker, and author Dave Sanderson will participate in a special book-signing event at Palisades Medical Center, 7600 River Rd. on Tuesday, Jan. 19 from 6 to 9 p.m. to celebrate the release of “Moments Matter,” written by Sanderson with Cindy Wrightson. Refreshments will be served and attendees can get a signed copy of the book for a $20 donation to the Palisades Medical Center Foundation.
The book signing event coincides with the seven-year anniversary of the Miracle on the Hudson, when birds struck US Airways Flight 1549 and the crew was forced to ditch and land the plane in the Hudson River.
The last passenger off the flight that day was Dave Sanderson. He was responsible for helping many of his fellow passengers to safety, risking his own life in frigid water to help others off the plane. Sanderson and many other passengers were treated at Palisades Medical Center following the emergency landing.
Despite the hazards to himself, Sanderson thought only of helping others and emerged from the wreckage with a mission: to encourage others to do the right thing. “Moments Matter” details his close encounter with death and how one defining moment can create a lifetime of purpose. The book’s inspirational message focuses on positive thinking, teamwork, and leadership. Readers will find the book to be helpful and inspirational in their own struggles for resilience and purpose. To RSVP or for more information call (201) 854-5008.
