When I first found America in 2007, there was little written about her. Your writing is timely, and feels deeply important for our country. Her presence is truly needed in our world today, and your story may well be a healing for us all. Thank you again, Katya.

Katya Miller is a diligent researcher and an able and talented writer, so I know her proposed book will be thoroughly researched, informative and readily accessible to the public. Over the years that we have corresponded about her project, I have been impressed with her persistence, enthusiasm and dedication to this project, Her work will not only celebrate the artistic and aesthetic aspects of the statue but it will also add great depth to our historical and symbolic understanding of the work itself.
