I’m so happy to share that Marcie Colleen’s picture book text, SURVIVOR TREE, has sold at auction to Deirdre Jones at Little, Brown!
SURVIVOR TREE tells the true story of the Callery pear tree that stood at the base of the World Trade Center for 30 years and was almost destroyed, only to be pulled from the rubble, coaxed back to life, and eventually replanted as part of the 9/11 memorial.
We’re over the moon that Aaron Becker’s art will bring this story to life. In Marcie’s words, “Books heal. I hope SURVIVOR TREE helps those who need it, like writing it did for me.”
You’ll find it in bookstores in the summer of 2021 — congratulations to Marcie and everyone involved!
