  Arlene Alda

An award-winning photographer and children’s book author, Arlene Alda has written 19 books, the most recent of which, Just Kids From the Bronx Telling It Like It Is: An Oral History, is a book for adults lauded by Bill Clinton, Barbara Walters and Alice McDermott.

A Phi Beta Kappa graduate of Hunter College, Alda was a recipient of a Fulbright Scholarship to Cologne, Germany, where she studied clarinet at the Kölnische Hochschule für Musik. She then became a member of the National Orchestra, then a member of the Houston Symphony Orchestra, playing assistant first clarinet and bass clarinet under the baton of Leopold Stokowski.

She switched careers to focus on writing and photography; her work has been displayed at Nikon House in New York City and the Mark Humphrey Gallery in Southampton. As a freelance photographer, her photographs have appeared in The Saturday Evening Post, Vogue, Life Magazine and Today's Health Magazine, for which she received a Chicago Graphics Communications Award for her photo essay, “Allison's Tonsillectomy.”

Alda creates many of the photographs and illustrations for her children’s books, which include Sheep, Sheep Sheep, Help Me Fall Asleep, Arlene Alda's 1,2,3 — which won an American Library Notable citation — The Book of ZZZs and Did You Say Pears? . . . short bio
