Congratulations to Highland Park Author, Daniel Rosenberg

Highland Park resident and author Daniel Rosenberg is one of three finalists in the Soon To Be Famous Illinois Authors Project.  His self-published novel, The Towers Still Stand, was chosen from among sixty-six submissions. (more)   

The Towers Still Stand, Rosenberg’s first work of fiction, is a chilling alternate history thriller premised on the failure of the September 11 attacks.  The hijackers and their leaders regroup and plan another attempt. Only one man in the government and an aggressive journalist suspect the menace.  How can they convince a skeptical nation that the World Trade Center is in danger? These two find themselves in a deadly battle against time and the complacent nature of the US government.

A professional journalist, Daniel Rosenberg’s career includes stints writing for the Wall Street Journal and Barron’s. He currently writes about financial markets for a major brokerage firm. Rosenberg is married, has two sons, and lives in Highland Park, Illinois.

Rosenberg’s book was nominated by the Highland Park Public Library.  The Soon To Be Famous Illinois Authors Project helps raise interest in self-published fiction. Now in its fourth year, the competition is coordinated by library marketing professionals in collaboration with the Illinois Library Association  (ILA) and the Reaching Across Illinois Library System (RAILS).  The winner will be announced on Wednesday, April 12 at 1PM at the Gail Borden Public Library District.  For more information, see soontobefamous.info.
