As we take the time to remember and honor the 20th anniversary of 9/11, one of the most tragic days in the history of our country, one of our fellow neighbors is here to remind children and adults of how hope appears in the midst of hardship and how we can continue to heal and recover together, one branch at a time. 🙏🏻

Children’s author Ann Magee joins our John Masiulionis to kick off the 3-year anniversary celebration of The Empowered Publicity Children’s Books Spotlight Series for a very special conversation, to share the release of her new children’s book, Branches of Hope: The 9/11 Survivor Tree (published by Charlesbridge Publishing). 📖🌳

As part of Episode #126, Ann talks about the touching story of the 9/11 Survivor Tree, how it was rescued from Ground Zero, rehabilitated, and replanted at the 9/11 Memorial in New York City in 2011, how we can help to keep the memory of 9/11 alive and well for future generations, words of comfort and support for those navigating through a hardship, to help them remember that hope can be found, plus much more. 💚

We encourage all of you to support Ann by purchasing your copy of Branches of Hope: The 9/11 Survivor Tree, and enjoying this empowering read with your little ones! 📖
