Maya Lin: Artist-Architect of Light and Lines - Jeanne Walker Harvey, Dow Phumiruk

Staff Pick

The Vietnam Memorial plays a part in both Maya Lin: Artist-Architect of Light and Lines (Henry Holt, $17.99), a picture-book biography of the designer of the stirring monument, and Rolling Thunder (Scholastic, $17.99), a fictionalized story about the annual Memorial Day motorcycle demonstration in Washington, DC. A graceful narrative by Jeanne Walker Harvey and elegant illustrations by Dow Phumiruk reveal the inspirational story of Lin, who won the design contest for the Vietnam Memorial when she was still in college. Meanwhile, the spare, poetic words of Kate Messner and the evocative drawings of Greg Ruth tell the story of the thousands of motorcyclists who ride annually for freedom, paying tribute to the Vietnam War veterans still categorized as POW or MIA as well as all those who serve in the U.S. Armed Forces. Ages 7-10.
