Aaron Becker: Survivor Tree

September 2nd - October 2nd

We are excited to host Aaron Becker's original drawings, watercolors, and prints from his new book Survivor Tree. Aaron will be here signing copies of his book on Friday, September 10th from 5-8 pm. Stop by and see this beautiful work and meet the artist!

About the Book:"This hopeful story of a resilient tree that grew (and still grows) at the base of the twin towers is a simple introduction for young readers to gain an understanding of September 11th and the impact it had on America.

One September day, the perfect blue sky exploded. Dust billowed. Buildings crumbled. And underneath it all, a tree sprouted green leaves in its distress. Pulled from the wreckage, the tree saw many seasons pass as it slowly recovered far away from home. Until one day, forever scarred and forever stronger, it was replanted at the 9/11 Memorial.

This story of the real Survivor Tree uses nature's cycle of colors to reflect on the hope and healing that come after a tragedy—and assures readers of their own remarkable resilience."
