Sunday, September 11, 2016, marks 15 years since the attacks on the Twin Towers and the Pentagon.
Children’s author and illustrator Marie Betts Bartlett has found a way to mark the occasion. The Leyden, Massachusetts, resident has come out with a book, “Poppy’s Purpose.”
It’s based on the true story of a PATH train car. Now on display at a Connecticut museum, the car was trapped in the train station under the World Trade Center.
