Synopsis: A biography of the popular talk show host who rose from a childhood of poverty to become one of the most visible women in the nation.
From Booklist: Reviewed with Sandy Asirvatham's Katherine Graham.
Gr. 7-10. These entries in the Women of Achievement series provide solid introductions to two women who did it their way despite the odds. Although her father owned the Washington Post, Graham felt no discomfort when he left the paper to her husband; her role was wife and mother, not boss. But after her husband committed suicide, Graham took over, steering the Post through its rise to one of the country's most important newspapers and providing leadership during such events as Watergate, when her paper broke the story. Author Tan's personal struggles were primarily with her mother and the pull between her Asian roots and her American sensibility. Both books are well written and filled with enough black-and-white photos to make them inviting. Readers will come away with the sense that no matter how successful these women became, their paths were difficult and their lives less about perching atop the mountain than the journey there. Each book ends with a chronology, a reading list, and an extensive bibliography. Ilene Cooper
