Alexandra S. D. Hinrichs

Alexandra Hinrichs is the author of the picture book, Thérèse Makes a Tapestry, a CCBC Choices 2016 selection.

When she isn’t writing, she’s reading, and when she isn’t doing either or those two things (and often when she is) she is mothering two small boys.

Hinrichs has worked as a historical researcher for American Girl, a children’s librarian, and a children’s bookseller. She earned MAs in History and in Library & Information Studies from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. She is also a graduate of Colgate University, where she studied French and History.

Hinrichs lives with her family in Bangor, Maine.
