We are excited to welcome Andrea Hall and celebrate her latest book, She's On the Money!
Queen Cleopatra had coins made with her face on them. Japan put writer Ichiyō Higuchi on the 5,000 yen note more than 100 years after her death. And Eva Perón was the first Argentine woman on a bill. These biographies examine 15 extraordinary women who have appeared on coins or bills—and how they got there. Each inspiring story also digs deeper into different currencies and the customs of the time period.
ANDREA HALL is an author and children’s book editor. She received a BA in English/creative writing from Miami University in Ohio. She’s a former book reviewer for the Ohioana Quarterly and a member of the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators. When not writing, Andrea can be found crafting, baking and reading. Raised in Ohio, Andrea currently lives in Chicago.
This event is a partnership with the Upper Arlington Public Library and the Central & Southern Ohio Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators (SCBWI).
