Sister to pen Atlanta Olympic bomb victim biography

29th July 2009

A new book about the life of Atlanta Olympic Park bomb victim Alice Jane Minor Hawthorne is set to be penned by her sister.

This Monday (July 27th) marked the 13th anniversary of the 1996 Olympic Park bombing, with Pinkie Minor Huiel using the date to announce the biography about her sister.

Speaking at a press conference outside the Woodie Fite Senior Center, Ms Huiel told the Douglas County Sentinel: 'I'm here today to do what I've been promising myself I'd do for the last four years.

'I didn't know how to start it at first.'

Ms Hawthorne was the only person to die in the bombing, which injured 111 people.

Eric Robert Rudolph, who had committed a number of other terrorist acts throughout the US, was convicted of the bombing and is still in jail.

Ms Huiel said that she was getting ready for Sunday school when she heard about her sister's death, having seen her sister's face on the TV.
