Artists & Authors
Join Sean Rubin and Aaron Becker as they share their recent nonfiction picture books celebrating the  pear tree that survived the September 11, 2011 attacks on the World Trade Center. (Sean Rubin’s This Very Tree, and Marcie Colleen’s Survivor Tree, illustrated by Aaron Becker.) Both titles provide a simple introduction for young readers to gain an understanding of 9/11 and are an accessible resource to learn about and discuss grief, trauma, and recovery.

“A lovely 20th-anniversary tribute to the towers and all who perished—and survived.”
