Genre: Fiction
Age Group: Adult
Contents: 10 regular print copies, 1 large print copy + 1 resource notebook
New York City is finally prepared to establish a memorial to the terrorist attacks of September 11. From among 5,000 blind entries, the committee picks one by an architect with a Muslim name, and a firestorm of public protest erupts. Journalists, rabblerousers, politicians, grieving families, activist groups - all clamor to make a public case for or against the chosen memorial. The architect at the center of the controversy, Mohammed Khan, considers himself an ordinary American, but he will not relinquish his victory. Waldman presents a sympathetic but unwavering look at all sides in a dramatic and tragic story.
