What a wonderful experience to be interviewed by Tom Grace, thriller author and architect and father of five (he knows picture books!). Thank you to the host, Dean Karayanis, for the opportunity! Check out the interview: Jeanne Walker Harvey – Maya Lin: Artist – Architect of Light and Lines:

"This week, we introduce children to the woman behind the Vietnam War Memorial in Washington D.C. The book (for young readers ages 4 to 8) is Maya Lin: Artist-Architect of Light and Lines, by San Francisco children’s author Jeanne Walker Harvey. Just how did a college student managed to win the design competition for what’s now the most frequently visited monument in the nation’s capital?"
