Description

When Maya Lins design for the new Vietnam Veterans Memorial was chosen in 1981 over more than a thousand other designs, it was a highly controversial decision. But Lin, a young Chinese American, believed in herself and her work, and she not only saw her design come to fruition, but she went on to create numerous other buildings, sculptures, and memorials around the country. Readers will be fascinated by the story of this creative young artist, told with simple text and supplemented with color photos. A Words to Know section helps prepare readers for vocabulary in the text, and quotes from Lin herself paint a clearer picture of an accomplished artist whose influences range from her cultural background to the biodiversity of our planet.
