About the Author

Hallie Fryd is a writer living in Oakland, California. She studied history at Carnegie Mellon University and writes frequently about history and pop culture. She grew up in a Quaker suburb of Philadelphia, but dislikes weather—which brought her to the temperate climate of the San Francisco Bay Area. When not writing, or trying to recount historical episodes with wild gesticulations, she works as a social media manager for the brain training company, Lumosity. Hallie is the author of Scandalous!: 50 Shocking Events You Should Know About, which was a Junior Library Guild Selection and a Foreword Reviews Gold Medal Book of the Year Winner in 2012.

Praise For…

“A gleefully explicit catalogue of the past century’s headline-grabbing bad behavior…Catnip for scandal junkies, with a bit of historical perspective stirred in.” — Kirkus Reviews

“Fryd uses a snappy format to introduce 50 newsworthy (and occasionally cringe-worthy) dramas that caught the public’s attention. Informative!” — ALA Booklist
