Get Up Nation®! My name is Ben Biddick. I’m the Creator and Host of the Get Up Nation® Show and Co-Author of Get Up: The Art of Perseverance with former Major League Baseball player Adam Greenberg. Recently I had the honor and privilege of speaking with Emily France. Emily is the critically acclaimed young adult author of Signs of You and Zen and Gone, a July 2018 Washington Post Best Book for Young Readers. Her latest book is called Krit Dreams of Dragon Fruit: A Story of Leaving and Finding Home. It’s a beautifully illustrated, Zen inspired picture book for children ages 4-8 about moving to a new home, making friends, and finding beauty wherever we are. Emily wrote the book along with Natalie Becher, and Samantha Woo illustrated it. In a time where COVID19 has us all dealing with new and unprecedented experiences that may cause us to feel far from home…while in our own home…I am so happy to welcome Emily France to Get Up Nation® to discuss her insights into resilience! Emily, welcome!
