Minh Lê is a writer but is a man of few words. He is a national early-childhood policy expert and the author of “Let Me Finish!” (illustrated by Isabel Roxas). He has written for The New York Times, The Horn Book and The Huffington Post. A first-generation Vietnamese-American, Lê went to Dartmouth College and has a master’s in education from Harvard University. Outside of spending time with his beautiful wife and sons in their home near Washington, D.C., his favorite place to be is in the middle of a good book. Lê’s newest book (illustrated by Dan Santat) is “Drawn Together” (Disney-Hyperion).
