Maya Lin

Maya Lin, Artist-Architect of Light and Lines, written by Jeanne Walker Harvey (Christy Ottaviano Books)

Did you know that Maya Lin was a senior in college when she won the contest anonymously to design the memorial? There were protests and hearings to change her design or go with a different design when they found out she was the winner. She stood by her design so that it ultimately was built. Here's a link to Macmillan's page about our book (with sample images!):
