This month’s NVMM Reads book, “Blue Sky White Stars,” shares the story of America and its diversity through beautiful imagery and powerful language. For author Sarvinder Naberhaus, this book is an ode to America and the nation’s most enduring symbol – the American Flag. The book pairs sparse text with the beautiful paintings of acclaimed artist Kadir Nelson, to encapsulate the beauty, strength and inclusivity of America. Naberhaus and Nelson communicate America is more than rolling hills, blue skies and fields of grain; America is made up of the people who call America home. These people are what make America a beautiful and special place to live.
